Iran says it will cooperate with UN nuclear watchdog

VIENNA - Iran's new envoy to the UN nuclear agency said on Thursday he would cooperate with it in order to "overcome existing issues once and for all", potentially signalling a more flexible approach from Tehran's new administration.
But Ambassador Reza Najafi, at his first board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), also repeated Iran's position that it would not give up what it sees as its rights to a peaceful nuclear energy program.
Iran is at loggerheads with Western powers in particular, who fear that its nuclear program may be designed to give it the capacity to build nuclear weapons.
