Nuclear talks between Iran and world powers are "making progress" albeit slowly, UN nuclear watchdog chief Mohamed ElBaradei said on Tuesday.

AFP - Nuclear talks between Iran and world powers here are "making progress," albeit "slower than expected" but a deal was "possible", UN nuclear watchdog chief Mohamed ElBaradei said Tuesday.

"We spent the whole day today in bilateral and trilateral consultations," ElBaradei told reporters after around an hour of talks.

"We still hope to be able to reach an agreement. It's a complex process," he said.

"There are technical aspects, many technical issues that we have to hammer out. It is of course a question of confidence buiding, of guarantees.

"I think and I believe that we are making progress. It is maybe slower than I expected but we are moving forward and we are going to meet tomorrow at 10:00 am."
