The head of the UN atomic watchdog said he has called an extraordinary meeting of the agency's board on January 24th to discuss how to verify Iran's upcoming nuclear freeze.


International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano said he would "consult" with the 35-nation board regarding a request by Iran and six world powers to the IAEA to "undertake monitoring and verification of nuclear-related measures in relation to the Joint Plan of Action" signed on November 24th.

Under the landmark deal due to take effect on January 20th, Iran has agreed to freeze parts of its nuclear programme for six months in exchange for moderate sanctions relief and a promise of no new sanctions.
