VIENNA  : The UN atomic agency said Monday that it was discussing withIranpossible dates for what would be the 10th round of talks since late 2011 onTehran’s suspected nuclear bomb-making efforts.

“I can confirm we are discussing possible dates of a meeting withIran,” International Atomic Energy Agency spokeswoman Gill Tudor said.

She declined to comment however on Iranian media reports suggesting that the two sides would meet on May 21 inVienna, where the agency has its headquarters.Iranhas consistently rejected as unfounded what the IAEA calls “overall, credible” evidence that until 2003 and possibly since, it conducted nuclear weapons research. The IAEA closely monitorsIran’s declared nuclear facilities but wantsIranalso to grant access to sites, scientists and documents involved in these alleged military activities.
