WASHINGTON, Feb 23 (Reuters) – The United States urged Iran again on Tuesday to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), saying that Tehran is moving further away from compliance under its nuclear constraints, State Department spokesman Ned Price said.

Speaking at a press briefing, Price said Washington will be in close consultation with the U.N. nuclear watchdog to discuss appropriate action in support of the agency’s dealings with Tehran.
