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 traveled 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.

The five-member IAEA team was seeking answers from Iran about intelligence suggesting its declared civilian program is a facade for a weapons program.

"The second round of talks between Iran and the IAEA team regarding mutual cooperation ended this evening in Tehran," the student news agency ISNA quoted Iran's ambassador to the IAEA in Vienna, Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh, as saying. "The negotiations will continue in the future."
