Investigators from the United Nations nuclear watchdog ended two days of talks with Iranian officials on Thursday with no apparent breakthrough on their request to visit a military site to investigate allegations that Iran may have carried out tests on triggers for atomic weapons. But the semiofficial Fars news agency said the two sides agreed to hold more talks on Feb. 12. The monitoring group, the International Atomic Energy Agency, wants to revisit Parchin, a military site southeast of Tehran, to determine whether Iran may have tested components needed to develop a nuclear weapon. Iran has denied any such activity. In the past, Iran allowed I.A.E.A. inspectors into Parchin, but now it says any new visits must be governed by an agreement that lays out the scope of an investigation.
