Vienna, July 24, IRNA
Iran's Under-Secretary of Supreme National Security Council Javad Vaeedi said on Tuesday that next round of nuclear talks with IAEA will be held in Tehran on August 20.

Vaeedi described his meeting with IAEA officials led by Deputy Director General Olli Heinonen fair and constructive.

"We are moving forward to the best situation."

In the meantime, Olli Heinonen said after the meeting that IAEA inspectors would visit Iran's heavy-water reactor in Arak next week.

He added other issues including the origin of Plutonium pollution in some Iran's equipment were also discussed.

The meeting was aimed at concluding a plan to verify Iran's nuclear program.

The two sides are working on a timetable to resolve the outstanding issues about Iranian nuclear program and inspection of Iran's nuclear sites.

The first round of Iran and IAEA talks was held in Tehran on July 12-13.

Negotiations between Iranian and IAEA officials began after the last meeting of Iran's Secretary of Supreme National Security Council and IAEA Director General Mohammad Elbaradei.
