Tehran: UN’s nuclear watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) investigators have initiated a new round of talks with Iran in Tehran in an attempt to resolve longstanding concerns over Iran's nuclear programme, media reports said.

A team in the leadership of IAEA’s chief inspector Herman Nackaerts and one headed by Tehran's IAEA representative Ali Ashghar Soltanieh kicked off talks "find a solution to concerns and questions raised by the IAEA, Iran’s new agency ISNA reported.  

The visit was a part of a probe into Iran's nuclear research, which the West suspects is aimed at developing atomic weapons.

The two sides had agreed to meet again on Thursday, ISNA said.

The visiting representatives also hope to secure access to Parchin, a military site near Tehran the IAEA suspects was used to test key nuclear weapons parts.

The visit comes as Iranian media reported that Tehran and six world powers had agreed on the next round of their negotiations.

As of now no agreement had been made on a location for the talks, ISNA reported.
