Tehran, Dec 12, IRNA
Iran and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) ended their talks Wednesday on the source of nuclear contamination in a technical college in Tehran.

According to IRNA's political reporter, the talks started on Monday in the venue of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization , but officials have given no news yet about the results of the talks. In the past, IAEA usually announced the results of such talks.

Technical talks on the source of contamination is the third part of an agreement reached between Iran and IAEA on August 21, two weeks later than the closure of the issues of P1 and P2 Centrifuges and the document on metallic uranium.

IAEA Chief Muhammad al Baradei in his latest report to the Agency's Governing Council wrote that IAEA had presented written questions to Iran on the source of uranium contamination detected in the equipment in a technical college in Tehran. the Agency had also asked Iran to provide availability to certain individuals, equipment and places.

In 2003, IAEA announced that it had detected cases of high contamination in Iran but Tehran said that its source was the imported equipment and not Iran's nuclear activities.

IAEA confirmed Iran's claim in 2005 and announced that the source of contamination was imported equipment.
