The Iran game

Iran kicked the inspectors out, now they are letting them back in.

Iran will allow a resumption of inspections by the UN nuclear agency that it halted last week, the country's chief nuclear negotiator has said.

Hassan Rowhani said the suspension of IAEA's visits was a technical problem that would be solved by an agreement.

On Sunday, the IAEA urged Iran to allow inspectors back as soon as possible.

Iran imposed an indefinite ban on Saturday in reply to an IAEA resolution accusing Tehran of keeping some nuclear activities secret.

The United States has accused Iran of developing a secret weapons programme and wants the International Atomic Energy Agency to declare the country in breach of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Tehran insists its nuclear activities are for peaceful purposes such as the generation of electricity.

Isn't the world tired of this game yet?
