The following is a transcript of remarks made on 15 May 2013 by Herman Nackaerts, Deputy Director General for Safeguards, at the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations and other International Organizations in Vienna, after talks with Iranian officials:

We had intensive discussions today but could not finalize the structured approach document that has been under negotiation for a year and a half now.

Our commitment to continue dialogue is unwavering. However, we must recognize that our best efforts have not been successful so far.

Therefore, we will continue to try and complete this process. A date for the next meeting has still to be set.
