Iran will hold the second round of talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over its nuclear programme on Tuesday in Vienna, Iran's IAEA envoy said Monday.
Ali-Asqar Soltanieh told ISNA news agency that the Iranian delegation will be headed again by Javad Vaeidi, deputy of the National Security Council and hold talks with IAEA deputy director Olli Heinonen on Tuesday in Vienna.
The first round of talks was held on July 11 and 12 in Tehran where the two sides agreed on IAEA inspections of the heavy-water reactor at Arak, currently under construction in central Iran.
Based on an agreement reached last month in Vienna between Iran's chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani and IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei, the two sides are to draw up a plan of action under which Iran would clarify all the remaining technical ambiguities of its nuclear programme to the IAEA within 60 days.
The agreement is supposed to resolve all technical aspects and serve as a basis for Larijani and European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana to reach a political consensus over the nuclear dispute.
Tehran hopes that all differences with the IAEA over its nuclear programme would be settled as scheduled within these two months.
