|IAEA says it will work for Iran deal||
TEHRAN – The UN nuclear watchdog said on Tuesday it would seek in talks in Iran to bridge differences that have prevented it restarting an investigation into Iran’s nuclear activities, Reuters reported.
“Differences remain ... we will work hard to try to resolve these differences,” Herman Nackaerts, deputy director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said at Vienna airport as he and his team of senior IAEA officials were departing for the Iranian capital for Wednesday’s meeting.
On February 26, Iran and world powers are due, after a break of eight months, to resume separate, broader negotiations in Kazakhstan aimed at finding a diplomatic settlement to the decade-old dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.
The six powers - the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany - want Iran to curb uranium enrichment and increase cooperation with the IAEA investigation. Iran wants them to recognize its right to refine uranium for peaceful purposes, and an easing of sanctions.
