The UN atomic watchdog chief said Friday, after a crucial visit to Iran, that both sides have a "better understanding" in some areas but that more work is required.

In a text published in IAEA website on Friday we read: I travelled to Tehran on Thursday for meetings with President Hassan Rouhani and the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani. It follows meetings in Vienna with Foreign Minister Javad Zarif and Iranian officials.

The purpose of the visit was to advance work towards the resolution of all outstanding issues regarding Iran’s nuclear program, including clarification of possible military dimensions.

I believe that both sides have a better understanding on some ways forward, though more work will be needed.

We also touched on the ongoing negotiations between the E3+3 countries and the Islamic Republic of Iran towards a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and the Agency’s monitoring and verification of nuclear-related measures under such agreement.
