VIENNA, June 4. /TASS/. Iran and the P5+1 countries (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) have not clarified the criteria for inspections of suspicious Iranian facilities by the experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Thursday as he answered a question by TASS.
"The problem is still quite dubitable," he said, adding that the sides should fully comply with the principles featured in the Supplementary Protocol to the Agreement on IAEA Guarantees.
Ryabkov also said the sides failed to interlink mechanisms of control over Iran’s nuclear program with possible restoration of anti-Iranian sanctions.
The Russian diplomat noted that Moscow insists any decision on sanctions against Iran be passed by UN Security Council.
"We insist that any decision to cancel or restore the anti-Iranian sanctions should be passed by a resolution of the United Nations Security Council," Ryabkov stressed.
