TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's intelligence chief is accussing the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency of sending spies instead of inspectors to monitor Iran's nuclear activities.

State TV quoted Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi as saying that the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency's inspectors have engaged in espionage and the agency must take responsibility for their actions.

In Saturday's report, Moslehi did not elaborate or identify the inspectors Iran was accussing.

MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — Iran's foreign minister says Tehran will seek to broaden next week's meeting with world powers beyond nuclear issues to include the Islamic Republic's views on world affairs.

Manouchehr Mottaki's comments in a speech in Bahrain restate Iran's position that it wants Monday's planned talks in Geneva to go further than Iran's nuclear program.

Mottaki also hinted that Iran could offer more talks with the U.S. and allies if the "Iranian agenda" is added. Among the issues Iran seeks to address is Israel's undeclared but widely suspected nuclear arsenal.

Mottaki spoke Saturday, a day after U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton told the Bahrain conference that Iran must prove to the world it only seeks a peaceful nuclear program.
