The head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog will visit Iran on Sunday for talks with senior officials there, as opposition from the United States threatens to undermine an international accord to curtail Iran's nuclear program.

Yukiya Amano, the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, will discuss Iran's implementation of the 2015 agreement, the IAEA said on Wednesday.

The visit comes during a dispute between Washington and Tehran over US President Donald Trump's decision this month not to certify Iranian compliance with the landmark nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers.
