Iran says 'new framework of cooperation' agreed with IAEA

VIENNA — Iran has agreed new terms of cooperation with the UN atomic watchdog regarding the agency's investigation into Tehran's nuclear activities, a top Iranian official said here Tuesday.

But the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation, Ali Akbar Salehi, declined to say what the new cooperation would entail. And a source close to the International Atomic Energy Agency told AFP that nothing substantially new had been agreed between the two sides.

"Nothing new has been agreed," the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The IAEA itself refused to comment on Salehi's remarks.
