MOSCOW, July 14./TASS/. Moscow welcomes the agreements on Iran and will do everything it can to see the agreements reached in Vienna implemented in full, President Vladimir Putin has said.
"We are satisfied that the underlying principle of the found solution is that of phasing and reciprocity, which our country consistently defended at all stages of these difficult negotiations," a statement of the Russian leader posted on the Kremlin website says.
"The Russian team of negotiators and nuclear specialists made a sizable expert contribution to the drafting of a comprehensive agreement, which made it possible to unify different, often diametral, positions," Putin said. "Implementation of the coordinated actions will be under thorough control of the IAEA with an aim to confirm the entirely peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program," he said.
"Iran gets a possibility to develop this program, including uranium enrichment, under control from the IAEA and with a phased lifting of the sanctions imposed against Tehran, which we had insistently urged for a long time," the statement added.
"This is important also from the point of view of the implementation of large-scale plans of Russia’s cooperation with Tehran on peaceful atom, which were supported in the documents approved today," Putin noted.
"We expect that all interested parties, first of all the P5+1 states, will be complying in full with the reached solutions," Putin said. "Political will demonstrated by P5+1 and Iran in the course of the negotiations that have been completed is a guarantee of successful implementation of a plan of action designed for an extended period," he added.
"Russia will be doing all it can to see the Vienna agreements implemented in full, contributing to the strengthening of international and regional security, a global regime of nuclear non-proliferation, creation in the Middle East of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction and means of their delivery, mobilization of a broad coalition in the region to counter a terrorist threat," Putin said.
