Iran Nuclear Deal

The head of the UN nuclear watchdog says Iran has agreed to extend UN inspectors' access to its nuclear sites for three months.

But the brokered agreement will give IAEA officials less access and end their right to make snap inspections.

Iran is changing its access policy from tomorrow because the US has not lifted the sanctions imposed since Donald Trump abandoned the 2015 nuclear deal.

Washington and Tehran now have more time to seek a compromise.

The then-Trump administration re-imposed crippling sanctions on Iran, and Tehran retaliated by resuming nuclear activity barred under the agreement signed with six world powers in 2015.
