Topic: IAEA expects progress by deadline in Iran nuclear inquiry

By Fredrik Dahl VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog chief said on Monday Iran had begun implementing transparency measures ahead of an Aug 25 deadline, as part of a long-running investigation into suspected atomic bomb research by Tehran. Yukiya Amano, speaking at Vienna airport after talks with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in the Iranian capital, said he expected progress by Monday over the five steps the country agreed three months ago. They include providing information about two issues that are part of the U.N. nuclear agency's inquiry into what it calls the possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran's nuclear program, which Tehran says is entirely peaceful. Amano's comments suggested some increased optimism after his meetings in Iran on Sunday, but it remained unclear whether it would meet next week's target date.
