ElBaradei arrives in Iran to discuss remaining questions over nuke program

Chief of the UN nuclear watchdog Mohamed ElBaradei arrived in Teheran early Friday for further discussions concerning Iran's disputed nuclear program. Elbaradei was received by Iranian nuclear officials Mohammad Saeedi, deputy head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, did not immediately make any comments. According to earlier reports by Iranian news agencies, Elbaradei is scheduled to spend his two days in Teheran meeting with leaders including President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, head of Atomic Energy Organization Gholam Reza Aghazadeh, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki and Saeed Jalili, Iran's top nuclear negotiator. The Teheran talks are critical because they will be the basis for a report on Iran by the UN agency's chief that was supposed to be wrapped up by December, but was apparently postponed to March on Iran's request.
