U.N. nuclear inspectors will soon visit an Iranian uranium mine for the first time since 2005 as part of Tehran's agreement to open its disputed nuclear program to greater scrutiny, state television reported on Friday.

"Based on our agreement with the agency (IAEA), their inspectors will visit the Gachin mine in southern part of the country on January 29," Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran, was quoted as saying.
