Iran, IAEA Gear Up for Next Round of Talks


Iran and the UN nuclear watchdog probing its atomic ambitions geared up on Tuesday for a new round of talks, with Tehran expressing hope for a deal but no apparent optimism on the agency's part, AFP reported.

Experts are visiting Iran for the second time in a month, hoping for a deal requiring Tehran to respond to what the agency calls "overall, credible" evidence of nuclear weapons research work being conducted until 2003 and possibly since.
