The UN’s nuclear watchdog announced a deal with Iran to inspect their nuclear facilities, a day before a second round of talks between Iran and Western powers. Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency said the deal would be signed soon, after a two-day trip to Tehran to work out the details. That didn’t stop the US Senate, which passed a new round of sanctions on Iran, despite the reported progress being made on the negotiation front.
