VIENNA - The United Nations atomic agency will visit two uranium sites in Iran next week, Iranian media reported on Tuesday, part of the body's efforts to gain greater insight into Tehran's disputed nuclear program.



A senior inspector from the International Atomic Energy Agency will visit the Saghand uranium mine in central Iran and the Ardakan milling plant, where the ore is separated from other elements, ISNA news agency reported, quoting Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman of Iran's atomic energy organization.



Fars news agency said the visits would take place next week.



There was no immediate comment from the IAEA, a Vienna-based UN agency set up to prevent the spread of atomic arms.



IAEA access to such sites has been considered important as the uranium they produce, once refined, can be used in both nuclear power plants and, after further processing, nuclear bombs.
