Russia supports Iran’s peaceful n-programme: PutinJune 7th, 2012 - 11:26 pm ICT by IANS
Beijing, June 7 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Russia supports Iran’s right to peaceful use of nuclear energy and is in constant contact with Tehran on nuclear issues, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday.
“We have always supported the Iranian people’s right to modern technology, including the peaceful use of atomic energy,” Putin told his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Beijing.
Russia is aware of Tehran’s position, “which is that Iran is not working on the development of nuclear weapons”, Putin said. “That is our assumption.”
Western nations and Israel are seeking to persuade Iran to give up its uranium enrichment programme, which they suspect is aimed at producing nuclear weapons.
Iran says its nuclear programme is merely designed to generate energy.
