VIENNA: International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said on Friday that the latest round of talks with Iran was “very constructive” and said that the two sides will meet again on October 28.

Earlier, Iran and the IAEA began a new round of talks over Tehran’s nuclear energy program in the Austrian capital Vienna on Friday.


“We expect to review the existing issues and also exchange views on the ways we can continue our cooperation to resolve outstanding issues,” Iran Ambassador to the IAEA Reza Najafi said while talking to media ahead of the talks.

Najafi expressed optimism about “good outcomes” of Iran-IAEA talks, but emphasized that no one should expect that “all issues would be resolved in one round of negotiations.”

Herman Nackaerts, the IAEA Head of Inspections, also welcomed Iran’s readiness to resolve the nuclear issue, saying “We welcome the recent developments and the statements made by Iran about their willingness to engage to resolve the nuclear issue expeditiously. As you know, this is the first meeting since the [11th presidential] elections in Iran, and we are looking forward to discussions on how we can intensify the dialogue to resolve all outstanding issues.”
