MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin warns that a military strike on Iran can trigger a catastrophe and the Iranian nuclear problem can be settled only in the peaceful way.
“We offer to recognize Iran’s right for the development of a civilian nuclear program, including the right for uranium enrichment. But this should be done in exchange for putting the entire Iranian nuclear activities under a reliable and all-round control of the International Atomic Energy Agency,” the Russian presidential candidate said in his program article “Russia and Changing World”, which is published in the Moscow News newspaper on Monday.
“Russia is concerned over a growing threat of a military strike in that country. If this happens, the consequences will be really disastrous. Their real scale cannot be imagined,” Putin underlined.
