VIENNA: A system has been reached in talks between Iran and major powers toward a nuclear deal that will give the U.N. atomic watchdog access to all suspect sites, a senior U.S. official said Monday.

"The entry point isn't we must be able to get into every military site, because the United States of America wouldn't allow anybody to get into every military site, so that's not appropriate," the official said.

"But if in the context of agreement ... the IAEA believes it needs access and has a reason for that access then we have a process that access is given," the official said on condition of anonymity.

"We have worked out a process that we believe will ensure that the IAEA has the access it needs."
