Iran-IAEA nuclear talks postponed to February 8

Eurasia News

VIENNA: A planned meeting between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had been postponed to February 8, the UN nuclear watchdog said on Tuesday without giving a reason.

The meeting was scheduled to be held in Tehran on January 21 to discuss steps meant to help allay concern over Iran’s nuclear program as the IAEA wants Iran to address allegations that it has researched how to develop nuclear bombs, a charge Iran denies, saying that his nuclear program is entirely peaceful.

Iran and the IAEA in November last year agreed a cooperation pact, and six initial steps include access to two nuclear-related facilities and the provision of information.
