The Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has described the country’s new round of negotiations with the agency as “constructive,” Press TV reports.

“We had about eight hours of intensive discussions. The meeting was in a constructive environment… we mostly tried to bridge the gaps because there are some differences in the structure, approach, or modality for resolving the issues,” Ambassador Ali Asghar Soltanieh said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.

The Iranian envoy and IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Safeguards Herman Nackaerts headed the delegations at the one-day meeting, which was held in Vienna on Friday.

“We had… progress… but of course there are still some points that have to be worked out at a later stage,” Soltanieh said.

“These are issues regarding allegations [against Iran], which we have in many cases proved that they are baseless and with political motivations,” he added.

He also noted that Iran is “on the right track” and that “normal activities of Iran with the agency and [the IAEA’s] normal inspection [of the country’s nuclear facilities] is continuing without any difficulty.”
