By Fredrik Dahl VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran will set a date for a U.N. nuclear inspection of a uranium mine, an Iranian envoy said before talks on Wednesday between Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Under a cooperation pact signed last month to help allay international concern about Iran's nuclear program, the Islamic Republic would provide "managed access" to the Gchine mine by early February for the first time in some eight years. The IAEA-Iran agreement is separate from a breakthrough accord between Iran and six world powers reached on November 24 to curb Tehran's nuclear program in return for a limited easing of sanctions that have battered the country's economy. But both deals signaled a rapid thaw in Iran's troubled ties with the outside world, made possible by the election of a relative moderate, Hassan Rouhani, as president on a platform of ending Iran's international isolation.
