VIENNA, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Sanctions aimed at getting Iran to stop nuclear development appear to be having no impact, the head of the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency said Thursday.

At a meeting of the board of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna, Yukiya Amano said there is no progress in negotiations with Iran, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported. He said the next meeting with Iran is scheduled for Dec. 13 in Tehran.

In a quarterly report released this month, the IAEA said Iran is expected to double the number of centrifuges at its Fordow site to 1,400. The facility is believed to be close to enriching uranium to weapons grade levels.

Amano said that Iran has made IAEA investigation of its Parchin site more difficult.

Iran says its nuclear program is only for power production.
