Russia does not exclude more nuclear cooperation with Iran

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov says Moscow does not rule out the prospect of further nuclear energy cooperation with Iran under international law.

According to Press TV, Ryabkov told reporters on Thursday, “We do not exclude any forms of further cooperation with Iran in the peaceful nuclear sphere, although we will only pursue them in strict accordance with international law and the agreement we are working on right now.”

He said it was “premature” to discuss opportunities for such cooperation but stressed that it could come “in all shapes and sizes, including those without any precedent.”

The Russian official, however, stressed that Russia’s cooperation with Iran in the nuclear technology field is and will be in accordance with international non-proliferation treaties.
