The UN nuclear watchdog and Iran held “very productive” talks this week on how to advance a long-blocked investigation into Iranian atomic activities and will meet again in Tehran,they said in a rare joint statement on Tuesday.

The relatively upbeat announcement by Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency may further buoy hopes for a negotiated solution to the standoff over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions.

The IAEA and Iran “had a very productive meeting on past and present issues”,Tero Varjoranta,IAEA deputy director general in-charge of nuclear inspections,said after the two-day session in Vienna.

Iranian Ambassador Reza Najafi said Tehran presented new ideas to overcome the dispute. “I believe that,with the submission of these new proposals by Iran,we have been able to open a new chapter of cooperation,” he said. The next meeting will be held in Tehran on November 11.
