VIENNA, April 23. /TASS/. Russia is viewing a possibility of nuclear material withdrawal from Iran to Russia upon an agreement with the world six powers (comprising five UN permanent member countries - Russia, the United States, United Kingdom, France and China - alongside Germany known as the P5+1), Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Thursday.

However, Moscow and Tehran have disagreements on the issue, he said.

"Speaking about nuclear materials, there is such a possibility but, as we understand it, our Iranian friends have a somewhat different opinion on what should happen to that material," he said.

Iran and P5+1 group reached a breakthrough agreement in Switzerland’s Lausanne on April 2 on containing Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for gradual sanctions relief. The deadline for coordinating the final agreement is June 30.
