Statement at Start of Talks with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister

Vienna, Austria

by IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Vienna.

I welcome the good and constructive atmosphere of recent meetings between the IAEA and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Today’s meeting is a very important opportunity for us to discuss ways forward to address all the outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear programme.

These are longstanding and complicated issues.

It is very important for all of us that we can show concrete progress.

Thank you.
