TEHRAN, Apr 29 (Reuters) Iran today said it was willing to resume allowing snap U N atomic inspections if its case were dropped by the U N Security Council and passed back to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

''If the case returns to the agency again, we will begin the section that concerns the Additional Protocol,'' Mohammad Saeedi, deputy head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation, told state television.

The Additional Protocol to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty allows short notice inspections of nuclear facilities.

''The enrichment will continue. But regarding the Additional Protocol, we will continue implementing the Additional Protocol as a voluntary measure,'' Saeedi added.
