Iran, UN agency discuss restarting nuke probe

VIENNA (AP) — Iranian and U.N. officials are discussing whether to resume inspections meant to determine whether Tehran worked on atomic arms, in a test of pledges by Iran’s new president to reduce nuclear tensions.

Iranian envoy Reza Najafi says in Vienna that it would be unrealistic to expect that “in just one day of meeting we can solve our problems.” Herman Nackaerts of the U.N.’s nuclear agency also says only that he hopes the meeting can “intensify the dialogue.”

The two spoke Friday ahead of talks aimed at ending a nearly two-year stalemate. The U.N. agency wants access to a site it suspects was used to test conventional explosive triggers meant to set off a nuclear blast.

Iran denies working on, or interest in, nuclear arms.
