Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resume talks on Tehran's disputed nuclear program. According to an IAEA spokeswoman, the meeting, which was originally set to the February 12 was postponed but he did not give any further details.

The latest round of talks ended without an agreement to inspect Iran's nuclear facilities and investigate the country's suspected atomic bomb development program. 

"We had two days of intensive discussions. Differences remain so we could not finalise the structured approach to resolve the outstanding issues regarding possible military dimensions of Iran's nuclear programme," said the deputy director of the IAEA Herman Nackaerts.

The UN nuclear agency has long sought to gain access to the Parchin military complex southeast of Tehran where it believes the Islamic republic has been carrying out its research on nuclear weapons development. - No deal in U.N.-Iran nuclear talks, new meeting scheduled on 2013-01-18
