Iran and the United Nations's nuclear watchdog say they have reached a deal which will allow international inspectors to carry out monitoring of Tehran's nuclear activities.
After emergency talks, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, said Iran had agreed to extend U.N. inspector access to its sites for another three months.
With more details, the BBC's Paul Adams reports.
The IAEA's Argentine boss, Rafael Grossi, called this a good result.
The deal described in a joint statement as a temporary, bilateral, technical understanding means the agency will be able to carry out its work for up to three months despite Iran's decision to suspend some cooperation from Tuesday.
Mr. Grossi said he greatly regretted Iran's decision and admitted access would not be the same as before.
But he said it would be satisfactory.
This temporary fix is bound to have its critics, among those, especially Israel and the Gulf, who simply don't trust Iran.
