MOSCOW, March 21 (Itar-Tass) —— There is no, nor can there be military solution to Iran’s nuclear problem, Igor Ivanov, the president of the Russian Council on International Affairs, ex-foreign minister, said on Wednesday.
“There are two aspects of this problem. Iran’s right to peaceful nuclear energy has been insisted on for many years. The construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant by Russia was the confirmation of this. However, the International Atomic Energy Agency still has a number of questions to Tehran about its nuclear program, to which the Agency has not received answers. Iran itself must be interested in lifting such concern so as not to land in isolation.” Ivanov said.
The president of the Russian Council on International Affairs stressed that threats and speculations about the possibility of a military strike at Iran do nothing to solve the problem. “I hope these are only speculations,” Ivanov noted. “There is no, nor can there be military solution regarding the Iranian nuclear dossier,” he said. He pointed to the examples of Iraq and Afghanistan where the use of force had not achieved effect.
