LJUBLJANA - Iran is fulfilling all its "duties" towards the UN atomic watchdog and is open to more nuclear talks with major powers, Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday.

Salehi spoke a day before he was due to meet with UN nuclear agency chief Yukiya Amano, who has repeatedly urged Iran to step up cooperation with the Vienna-based agency and help address international concerns about Tehran's nuclear work.

Salehi made clear his view that Iran was providing sufficient cooperation, saying Tehran had "the best relations with the IAEA, we have a lot of inspections." His comments in Ljubljana were translated from Farsi into Slovenian.

"There were more inspections in Iranian nuclear buildings than anywhere else, we are following all our duties we have in regards to that, we are following the rules of the NPT (nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty)," Salehi told a news conference.
