It is part of the six-nation agreement under which North Korea agreed to allow a return of IAEA experts as part of its commitment to eventually scrap its nuclear program in exchange for economic aid and security assurances. The exact timing of the visit had not previously been made public, although March 13-15 had been discussed as tentative dates.
