The director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) agreed to meet with members of the US Senate next Wednesday, August 5th, to discuss the verification regime for Iran nuclear agreement, the IAEA said in a Friday press release, Al-Alam News Network reports.

“IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano will travel to Washington next week to meet members of the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations,” the press released stated.

Earlier on Friday, members of the Foreign Relations Committee sent the IAEA a letter requesting a meeting to discuss the verification framework reached between the IAEA and Iran following the July 14, 2015 signing of the comprehensive nuclear agreement, officially named the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The IAEA said Amano will discuss the agency’s role “in verifying and monitoring nuclear-related measures” under the Iran nuclear agreement.
