MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and its partners will continue the search for final and mutually acceptable resolution of conflict over Iran's nuclear programme, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the Federation Council upper house of parliament on Wednesday.
“Russia’s initiatives to settle differences... on a basis of superposition and reciprocity have received wide support,” Lavrov said.
“These are the principles which have played an important role to ensure a successful outcome of talks in Geneva at the end of November," he added, noting "A balanced agreement reached there has become an important, though only the first, step towards loosening one of the most tangled knots of global politics.”
“Together with our partners, we will continue looking for a broader and mutually acceptable solution to restore confidence of the international community in the exclusively peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear programme and to ensure Iran’s right to develop civilian nuclear power under control of the International Atomic Energy Agency and ensuring safety of all countries in the region, including Israel,” Lavrov said.
