Iran agrees to wider UN inspections of nuclear sites

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran agreed Monday to offer more information and expanded access to UN nuclear inspectors — including more openings at a planned reactor and uranium site — even as America’s top diplomat said Iranian envoys had backed away from a wider deal seeking to ease Western concerns that Tehran could one day develop atomic weapons.

The flurry of announcements and comments showed both the complexities and urgency in trying to move ahead on an accord between Iran and world powers after overtime talks in Geneva failed to produce a deal that could curb Iran’s uranium enrichment in exchange for a rollback in some US-led economic sanctions.
