Chief U.N. nuclear inspector urged end to Iran's atomic program confrontation

The chief U.N. nuclear inspector on Monday urged an end to confrontation over Iran's atomic program and suggested talks over differences should take precedence over U.S. and European threats to send Tehran to the U.N. Security Council.

But the Western push for referral appeared back on track.
