Tehran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are ready to settle all existing problems between the sides on short notice, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Rafael Grossi reported on Tuesday at a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian which was held in Tehran, TASS reports.

"Given the goodwill [of sides] and close cooperation with Iran, we are ready to settle the remaining problems on short notice with Tehran and the IAEA," the Tasnim news agency quotes him as saying.

For its part, Amir-Abdollahian noted that "according to Iran, it is necessary to continue cooperation with the IAEA within the framework of technical tasks, avoiding politicization."

Earlier, Grossi held negotiations with Head of Atomic Energy Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Vice-President Mohammad Eslami.
