    International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Yukiya Amano is expected to visit Iran on January 17 to meet country's leadership, IAEA said in a statement.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, IAEA confirmed Iran's compliance with the agreement on country's nuclear program and implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) came into effect.

    "IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano travels to Tehran on Sunday for meetings with the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Dr Hassan Rouhani, and Vice-President and Chairman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Dr Ali Akbar Salehi," the statement said on Saturday.
