MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has no doubts that Iran observes all nuclear program-related commitments.
“I have no doubts Iran complies with the rules of the game in that sphere. I have no evidence that might point to the opposite,” Putin said, while answering media questions during a visit to the newly-opened studios of the Russia Today television channel on Tuesday. He recalled that the latest IAEA report, too, indicated that Iran was observing its obligations.
Putin said that Iran had the full right to a civilian nuclear program of its own.
“It cannot be discriminated against in that respect in contrast to other world actors,” Putin said.
Putin said that Russia was prepared to go ahead with its cooperation with Iran in that sphere. He recalled the Bushehr nuclear power project.
“We have taken it to the logical outcome,” he said. However, as far as further cooperation with Iran was concerned, there were certain outstanding contradictions.
“For instance, we invited Iran to have nuclear fuel enriched in our territory. For some reason the Iranian partners refused. It is unclear why. They keep arguing that they wish to do the enrichment on their own within the framework of known international rules,” Putin said, adding that Russia recognized Iran’s right to such actions.
