The head of the UN atomic agency says possible clean-up efforts by Iran to dismantle a suspected nuclear site are continuing ahead of next month's talks with representatives of world powers.

IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano, speaking during a visit to neighboring Iraq on November 11, that activities to dismantle the Parchin military complex southeast of Tehran are ongoing.

Western powers believe Iran's nuclear program is aimed at developing atomic weapons, but Tehran insists it is for peaceful purposes.

The IAEA, which on November 9 is expected to release its latest report on Iran's controversial nuclear activities, has announced it will hold talks with Iran in Tehran on December 13, after a four-month hiatus.
