    MOSCOW, August 17 (RIA Novosti) - The Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, has arrived in Tehran for meetings with Iranian leaders and senior officials, IRNA news agency reported Sunday.

    Amano is expected to meet with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi to discuss the cooperation between Iran and the IAEA.

    The three-month agreement between the IAEA and Iran revealing information on Iran's nuclear program expires at the end of August. The IAEA will hold talks with the Islamic State when the P5+1 international group discusses the issue.

    In July, Iran and a group of six international mediators — Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and Germany — agreed to extend the deadline to reach a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program by four months.
