A high-ranking delegation from the UN's nuclear agency arrived here Tuesday for talks with Iran on the country's disputed nuclear program, state media reported. The discussions are the latest attempt by the International Atomic Energy Agency to address outstanding questions on a program that many Western countries believe is cover for weapons development, but Iran insists is focused on power generation. "The talks will be technical and take two to three days," the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Iran's envoy to the IAEA, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, as saying. IAEA Deputy Director-General Olli Heinonen is leading the UN delegation, said IRNA.
