Iran says UN nuclear talks will continue

February 22, 2012 00:28

TEHRAN - Iran expects to hold more talks with the UN nuclear watchdog, it said on Tuesday, after a two-day visit by inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency aiming to push Tehran towards more transparency over its nuclear program.

Senior inspectors from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had travelled to Iran for the second time in less than a month for talks on Iran's nuclear program, which has triggered UN sanctions and an oil embargo by Western states.

Iran denies Western accusations that it is covertly seeking the means to build nuclear weapons and says it will not abandon a nuclear programme that is entirely peaceful. It has also voiced willingness to resume talks with world powers that foundered a year ago.
