IAEA, Iran fail to reach nuclear deal

The United Nations nuclear watchdog has returned from Iran with no new agreement on investigating allegations that the country is working to develop nuclear weapons, the Voice of America informs.
Herman Nackaerts led the International Atomic Energy Agency team in the latest round of talks Wednesday in Tehran, but he said Thursday the two sides were unable to finalize a deal. He declined to say if any progress had been made.
The chief U.N. inspector says the IAEA remains committed to the negotiations and needs more time to reflect on the next steps. No date has been set for future talks.
Iran’s state-run news agency had reported Wednesday that the two sides agreed on “some points,” but did not offer details. Iran says its nuclear activity is strictly for peaceful purposes.
Another international effort to address concerns about the program comes February 26th, when Iran is set to meet in Kazakhstan with the United States, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
