TEHERAN (AFP) - Iran said the controversial Parchin military site is not included in an agreement it struck on Sunday with the United Nations atomic watchdog.

"Visiting Parchin is not included in the seven steps," said Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi.

His remarks, reported by the ISNA news agency, came after two days of talks in Teheran with experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), building on a roadmap deal agreed in November.

The new deal requires Teheran to implement seven steps by May 15, including visits to a uranium mine and yellowcake factory in central Iran.
