MOSCOW, February 01, 19:08 /ITAR-TASS/. There are no pretensions to Iran on implementing the agreements reached in Geneva at the end of 2013, director of the Russian Foreign Ministry Security and Disarmament Department Mikhail Ulyanov told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“There are no pretensions. Iran is ready for cooperation. These days representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have visited an Iranian uranium pit in compliance with the Geneva agreements. To all appearance experts are satisfied with the visit,” Ulyanov said.
“In general, after the two-year stagnation Iran and the IAEA have succeeded in achieving certain progress. This is, primarily, related to the military dimension of Iran’s nuclear programme. The parties agreed on measures to build a dialogue. This work is being done gradually. Thus, the dialogue is developing normally,” the diplomat said.
Commenting on the date and agenda of the next meeting between Iran and the Sextet (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany), he said the meeting might be held in New York on February 18.
At the same time, he said, “The date and place can be moved because it is rather difficult to coordinate the schedule of all participants.”
“The meeting will focus on the key lines of a comprehensive agreement on Iran. This will be a free and vivid discussion when any party can raised any question. There are no receipts. A difficult and long way should be passed before a final agreement is reached that will allow us to resolve the Iranian problem, clarify further development of its nuclear programme and be convinced that it has no military dimension,” Ulyanov said, adding “Then a decision can be taken to lift sanctions against Iran.
