Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said on Wednesday that an agreement has been reached with International Atomic Energy Agency Director General Rafael Grossi to continue cooperation toward ending the standoff over reinstalling surveillance cameras at an Iranian centrifuge workshop.

Both sides further agreed to meet again soon to finalize the text of the accord.

"Yet, to work out a text, we need to work on a few words," said Abdollahian, warning that "politicization of technical matters is unproductive."

The Iranian foreign minister made the remarks in an apparent response to Grossi's comment on his Tehran visit as "inconclusive" at a quarterly meeting of the agency's board in Vienna earlier in the day.

Grossi traveled to Iran on Monday evening and met Abdollahian and head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Mohammad Eslami on Tuesday over outstanding issues between Iran and the IAEA, including a standoff over the monitoring of activities at the centrifuge parts production site near Karaj. The visit came ahead of the Vienna nuclear talks scheduled to resume on November 29.
