Tehran - The head of Iran's Atomic Organisation said on Saturday that agreements have been made with International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect the new uranium-enrichment plant near Tehran.

"Considering the suitable co-operation between Iran and the IAEA, there will be an inspection of the new plant in due time," Ali-Akbar Salehi told state television without giving a precise date.

He said the new plant is located 100km south of the capital Tehran and would become operational in more than one year. The first enrichment plant of Natanz is located in central Iran.
