TEHRAN (ISNA)- Inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will visit Iran mid January to monitor enforcement of the Geneva deal in the country.

'A team comprising of 5-6 inspectors of the agency will step in Iran on January 18 to supervise implementation of the Geneva deal. They will be deployed in specified places including Natanz enrichment site, Fordo enrichment site and Arak reactor to watch implementation of Geneva deal as committed by Iran and to inform the agency of Iran's fulfillment to its obligations,' the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told ISNA.

He further added Iran will continue enrichment of uranium up to the level of 20 percent up to the last moments of January 19.

The official noted that the uranium enrichment up to 20 percent level will be suspended at Fordo and Natanz sites from early hours of January 20 and the inspectors will inform the agency of the process. In the same way, the G5+ 1 are expected to comply with their commitments on lifting sanctions on Iran.

He also reiterated that suspension of 20 percent enriched uranium is Iran's most important action in the first day of enforcing Geneva deal.
