MOSCOW, March 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s State Duma at the beginning of April will hold a special round-table conference entitled the Iranian Issue and Russia’s Foreign Policy, the chairman of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, Alexei Pushkov, said after a meeting on the Iranian issue behind closed doors, in which Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov took part.
He said the question was getting particularly crucial in the context of the statement by the Israeli leadership and the US secretary of defense about a strike on Iran in April, May or June.”
“The main aim of the round table discussion will be to consider likely scenarios, to map ways out of the dead end and to understand whether there can be a common platform for us and the other members of the sextet that would be suitable for Iran, Russia and other states,” Pushkov said.
He said there were various points of view on the problem of Iranian nuclear settlement.
“Some say the world should learn to live with a nuclear Iran. They are in the minority. Others say Iran should be bombed. Also, there is the idea of an interim status. For instance, Japan does have a certain nuclear potential, but it does not create nuclear weapons,” Pushkov explained. In his opinion, the Japanese option would be precisely that acceptable solution.
Experts, embassy officials, and representatives of the Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry have been invited to the round table.
