TEHRAN, January 3. /TASS/. Iran’s Foreign Ministry rejected media reports on Saturday of an alleged agreement with the United States on the list of nuclear materials intended for shipment to Russia.
The report by the Associated Press on an agreement between Iran and the United States on a formula to reduce Tehran’s nuclear program is “baseless,” Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham said.
There has been “no deal on any issue” regarding Iran’s nuclear program, Mehr news agency quoted Afkham as saying.
Such media reports aim to “complicate” and “demolish” the nuclear talks, she said.
The Associated Press reported on Friday citing diplomats that Iran and the United States had tentatively agreed on a formula that Washington hoped would reduce Tehran's ability to make nuclear arms by committing it to ship to Russia much of the material needed for such weapons.
The report came as Iran and the six world powers were preparing to have the second round of talks on the Iran nuclear issue in Geneva on January 15.
After failing to reach an agreement by November 24, 2014, Iran and the six world powers (Russia, China, the UK, the US, France plus Germany) decided to extend their discussions for seven more months.
Western nations suspect Iran of using its nuclear research for developing atomic weapons while Iran insists its nuclear program is intended for peaceful purposes only.
