The chief of the UN atomic energy watchdog, Mohamed ElBaradei, said Wednesday he was hopeful negotiations between the European Union and Tehran on the Iranian nuclear file would resume in the coming months.
"We have a hiccup right now," ElBaradei, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said at a forum in Moscow. "I am optimistic that in the coming months we will see a resumption of these negotiations."
"We need to find a face-saving solution," ElBaradei added, according to AFP.
The IAEA has recently threatened to refer Tehran to the UN Security Council over its nuclear program, but not before a November IAEA meeting.
