VIENNA, October 29 (Itar-Tass) - The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran may soon reach an agreement on an approach to addressing issues related to Iran’s nuclear program, Tero Varjoranta, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards, said at a news conference after two-day negotiations that ended on Tuesday.
Answering a question about whether a final agreement would be reached at the upcoming November 11 meeting in Tehran, he said: “We expect to complete our work as quickly as possible and move on to practical work on all outstanding issues.”
However, both negotiating sides have declined to elaborate on the measures proposed by Tehran on Monday. “Currently, we have not yet agreed on the issue, we have to verify the details in preparation for the next meeting,” said Iran’s permanent representative to the IAEA, Reza Najafi, adding that the parties have decided not to disclose the content of the agreements. “I believe (that), with the submission of these new proposals by Iran, we have been able to open a new chapter of cooperation. The ultimate goal would be resolution of all remaining issues,” Najafi said.
According to Varjoranta, the steps proposed by Tehran can indeed be regarded as practical. They can make a significant contribution to the strengthening of cooperation and dialogue to resolve all outstanding issues, he said.
