VIENNA (AP) — The U.N atomic energy agency says the Iranian government has slowed its pace of uranium enrichment ahead of new nuclear talks with six world powers.
In a report Thursday, the International Atomic Energy Agency also says that no major new components have been installed at an Iranian reactor that will produce plutonium.
Nuclear weapons contain either plutonium or enriched uranium. Iran says it is enriching only to get reactor fuel and says the reactor will be for medical and research purposes. It denies any interest in nuclear weapons.
Iran and the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany are looking to limit Tehran's nuclear capacities. Tehran wants relief from economic sanctions. They meet again next week after talks last week.
