The IAEA draft resolution on Iran submitted by France, UK and Germany
The IAEA draft resolution on Iran submitted by France, UK and Germany and based on IAEA Director General Mohamed El Baradei's report is both critical and constructive, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told a press conference in Tashkent on Thursday. Earlier Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow would continue cooperation with Iran if it nuclear programs were absolutely transparent and controlled by the International Atomic Energy Agency (Russian experts have been building a nuclear power plant in Bushehr since the 1990s). The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) backed Russia's initiative on the formation of the SCO-Afghanistan contact group, Sergei Lavrov said. Moreover, Russia proposed to create anti-drug security belts around Afghanistan, he noted. Sergei Lavrov expects no breakthroughs at the next six-sided meeting on the North Korean problem and believes the talks will be continued. "The talks will not end with the achievement of final agreements and all sides come out for further discussion in this format," the Russian Foreign Minister said. "The Korean settlement is a difficult problem and its solution is hampered by many years of mutual distrust," he added. According to him, the six-sided talks help restore this trust and find guarantees of Korea's denuclearization. Moreover, North Korea should be provided with energy sources instead of its nuclear program. The third round of the six-sided talks will be held in Beijing on June 23-26. US and North Korean as well as Russian, South Korean and Japanese high-ranking officials will participate in the talks. They aim to find mutually acceptable conditions to stop Pyongyang's nuclear program.
