Iran postpones nuclear talks

Iran has postponed talks with the United Nations nuclear watchdog group, reports the BBC on Sunday.

The meetings between Gholamreza Aghazadeh, Iran's chief nuclear negotiator and the head of the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency, headed up by Mohamed ElBaradei, were supposed to take place Monday in Vienna.

No reason was given by IRNA, which is Iran's official news agency.

The talks were about the U.N.'s concerns over Iran's uranium enrichment programs, which according to Reuters, was announced this week to be expanding.

The United Nations and many western countries in general are concerned that Iran may be pursuing the technology to create nuclear weapons.

Meetings between the IAEA and Iran have not yet been rescheduled.
