VIENNA - The UN nuclear watchdog's increased access in Iran to monitor a landmark agreement with world powers still falls short of what it says it needs to investigate suspicions that Tehran may have worked on designing an atomic bomb.

It is also a far cry from the wide-ranging inspection powers the International Atomic Energy Agency had in Iraq in the 1990s to help unearth and dismantle Saddam Hussein's clandestine nuclear programme after the first Gulf war.

Nevertheless, the IAEA will see its role in Iran expand significantly under the Nov. 24 interim accord between the country and the six major powers, the implementation of which will start next Monday.
