New Round of Talks between Iran, IAEA Monday

A new round of talks between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency is scheduled to start, Monday in Vienna on suspicions that Iran's nuclear development program is geared toward producing an atomic weapon. The Islamic Republic claims that its nuclear development program is solely for peaceful purposes.

The agency is expected to demand that the Tehran government grant its inspectors access to the military facility in Parchin, where it is believed that nuclear experiments are being carried out. On Sunday evening, the Associated Press published a graphic image of the facility that might substantiate those claims.
