TehrancTypeface:> The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, has travelled to Iran for talks for the first time in more than a year.

Grossi arrived in the capital Tehran on Monday, according to Iranian media reports. The visit comes at a turbulent time given the recent direct military clashes between Iran and Israel.

As in previous years, the IAEA chief is expected to negotiate with top Iranian politicians on the country’s nuclear programme.

In addition to the bilateral negotiations, according to Iranian media reports, Grossi is also due to take part in the country’s first international nuclear conference on Tuesday.

Grossi has long been trying to get answers from Iran about past secret nuclear activities. According to Grossi, there are still “important information gaps.” A few days ago, Iran’s nuclear chief Mohammed Eslami expressed confidence that the IAEA leader’s trip could bring an end to the differences.
