VIENNA - Iran has not formally contacted the UN nuclear watchdog about any inspector access to the Parchin military site, agency head Yukiya Amano said on Thursday, a day after Iranian media suggested such a visit could be granted.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has sought access to Parchin as part of its probe into suspicions that the Islamic Republic may be seeking nuclear weapons, but it was not granted during two rounds of talks in January and February.

IAEA Director General Amano told reporters he had read this week's media reports about Iran's position, "but there has been no formal communication to us."
