IAEA chief Grossi hopes meeting in Iran happens after Tehran casts doubt


- U.N. watchdog chief Rafael Grossi said on Wednesday he hopes a meeting with Iran due later this month to end an impasse over uranium traces found at undeclared sites happens after Iran's chief reportedly said it was on the agenda.

"I hope our planned technical meeting with Iran takes place," Grossi said on Twitter, adding at a conference that his tweet was in response to Iranian chief Mohammad Eslami's comments to state media, but that Iran had made such remarks to the International Atomic Energy Agency directly.
