MOSCOW, June 18 (Itar-Tass) - Iran’s new president, Hassan Rowhani, is capable of presenting evidence to the world community his country does not work on nuclear arms,” the president of the Center for Political Studies, Vladimir Orlov, said on Tuesday.
The expert said Iran’s new president “has the corresponding intention, but he should not be expected to take dramatic steps at once.”
“Nor shall we expect such steps from the United States. Neither Iran, nor the United States are prepared for such a turn,” Orlov said.
At the same time he remarked that “one should not rule out that Iran might agree to greater transparency of its nuclear program to reply questions from IAEA inspectors.”
“We agree that there are no simple or quick decisions regarding the Iranian nuclear program. We believe it is important for Iran to preserve its nuclear program in its civilian aspect,” Orlov said. “It would be wrong to demand Teheran should freeze or dismantle the created nuclear program. It is necessary to exclude the risk the program will become not transparent and put on the military track.”
