The spokesman for Iran’s nuclear department said Tuesday that United Nations inspectors can visit the country’s new heavy water nuclear reactor before a new round of talks next month.

But Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted by the official IRNA news agency on Tuesday as saying the International Atomic Energy Agency would first have to agree to details of the inspections for the facility in Arak, without elaborating on what those details would be, the Associated Press reports.

Officials from Iran and the IAEA will meet Dec. 11 for a new round of talks.  Negotiations between Iran and world powers stalled over the weekend, but Iran promised more information and access to its nuclear sites on Monday.
