The talks between Iran's Ali Larijani and Mohammed ElBaradei of the International Atomic Energy Agency are scheduled to take place in Vienna.

On Saturday, Larijani is expected to meet in Portugal with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana.

In Iran, the country's interior minister, Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, said Iran has 100 kilograms of enriched uranium and more than 150 tons of uranium gas.

The U.N. Security Council has imposed two rounds of limited sanctions on Iran for its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment, which can be used either to build a nuclear weapon or to generate power.

Earlier this week, Iran's OPEC representative, Hossein Kazempour Ardebili, said the country will not rule out using oil supplies as a "weapon" if the United States takes military action against Tehran.

The United States and its allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is for the peaceful production of energy.
