VIENNA - Iran has begun implementing nuclear transparency measures ahead of an Aug. 25 deadline agreed with the United Nations atomic watchdog, the IAEA, the head of the IAEA said on Monday.

"The implementation of these five measures started," International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Yukiya Amano told reporters at Vienna airport on his return from Tehran, where he met senior Iranian officials.



"I expect that progress will be made over the next week," said Amano, after securing what he called on Sunday a firm commitment to cooperate with the IAEA's long-running inquiry into Iran's disputed nuclear program.

Iran denies its program has any military objectives.
