VIENNA - Iran's talks with the UN nuclear watchdog about Tehran's atomic program are going well, a senior Iranian official said on Tuesday, the second day of discussions.

The talks will test Iran's readiness to address UN inspectors' concerns over military links to its nuclear work, ahead of wider diplomatic talks on the program's future in Baghdad next week between Tehran and world powers.

The nuclear watchdog aims at the Vienna talks to gain access to Iranian sites, documents and officials involved in suspected research activity that could be used to develop atomic bombs.

"We had good talks. Everything is (on the) right track. The environment is very constructive," Ali Asghar Soltanieh told reporters as he entered an Iranian diplomatic mission for talks with the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency.
