VIENNA (Reuters) - The U.N. nuclear watchdog chief said on Tuesday talks between Iran and big powers to help allay concerns about its atomic programme were making progress, though slower than expected, and he still hoped for an agreement.
"I believe that we are making progress. It is maybe slower than I expected. But we are moving forward and we are going to meet tomorrow at 10 a.m. (9 a.m. British time)," Mohamed ElBaradei said after a day of delay in resuming the high-stakes talks. "We spent the whole day in bilateral, trilateral consultations. We still hope to be able to reach an agreement. It's a complex process as you understand. There is the technical aspect, many technical issues that we have to analyse. There is of course a question of confidence-building guarantees."
