IAEA sets Iran inspection date

Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will examine Iran's newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant on October 25, the chief of the UN nuclear watchdog has said.

While announcing the date of the planned inspection, Mohamed ElBaradei also praised what he called Tehran's move "from conspiracy to co-operation" with the West.

"It is important for us to have comprehensive co-operation over the Qom site," ElBaradei told a joint news conference with Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran's nuclear chief, on Sunday.

"It is important for us to send our inspectors to assure ourselves that this facility is for peaceful purposes."

The underground nuclear fuel facility near the city of Qom had been kept secret until Iran disclosed its existence last month, setting off an international furore.
