TEHRAN, Iran —

Iran's state TV says there's no agreement with the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency on visiting a key site.

The International Atomic Energy Agency wants to send inspectors to the Parchin military base near Tehran. The IAEA suspects Iran tested explosives that could be used in nuclear weapons there. Iran denies that and says the evidence was "forged."

Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's envoy to the Vienna-based IAEA, says another round of talks will take place Jan. 16 in Tehran.

Soltanieh's remarks late Thursday night came after a day of talks in Tehran with a seven-member U.N. team, headed by Herman Nackaerts, an IAEA deputy director general.

The West suspects that Iran may move toward building nuclear weapons. Iran insists its program is for peaceful purposes.
