TEHRAN, December 11 (Itar-Tass) - Iran may positively influence the situation in Syria, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday after meeting with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif.
“Iran may have a positive impact on the situation in Syria,” the diplomat said.
Referring to the recent P5+1 deal, Russian Foreign Minister called not to interpret the agreements between the six world powers (five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany) and Iran in a broader or narrower way. The minister recalled that the fulfilment of the Geneva agreements had already begun.
“Most important is to do all you came to terms with someone, but not to try to interpret the agreements that are included in the document in a broader or narrower way,” Lavrov said.
Meanwhile, Russia wants to continue cooperation with Iran in the development of the peaceful nuclear industry, Russian Foreign Minister said. “We see the same interest from Iran. We are aware of Iran’s plans to build more nuclear power units similar to the Bushehr nuclear power plant. This is a light-water reactor, which no one banned,” Lavrov said.
