Tehran: Iran's state TV says a new round of talks between Tehran and the UN's nuclear agency will be held in Vienna on May 13-14.

The Saturday report quoted Ali Asghar Soltanieh, who is Iran's chief delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency, as saying that talks will focus on resolving "questions" about Tehran's alleged attempt to develop nuclear weapons.

IAEA inspectors have demanded access to a military complex where the agency suspects secret atomic work has been carried out. Iran says inspectors will be allowed to visit the Parchin military site as a goodwill gesture, but it would require agreement between the two sides on guidelines for the inspection.

Tehran denies pursuing weapons technology, saying its program is for peaceful purposes.
