    On Sunday, International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano will land in Tehran to sign a deal allowing the United Nation's nuclear agency to bring back its investigation into whether Iran was developing nuclear arms. A six-country meeting has been planned with Iran for later next week as well. Iran had blocked the inquiry's access since shortly after it launched in 2007, but now may be hoping their cooperation will stop the U.N.
