Russia's cooperation with Iran in the atomic sphere is based on the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty
Russia's cooperation with Iran in the atomic sphere is based on the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, said Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Yakovenko at a RIA Novosti press conference. "As the IAEA does not have any contraindications against cooperation with Iran, there are no grounds to terminate such cooperation," said Mr. Yakovenko. He noted that Russia in this issue is guided by the IAEA's opinion. "When the Agency says such cooperation is not welcome or prohibited, Russia won't cooperate with any state in this case," said Mr. Yakovenko. In his words, should any country violate provisions of the NPT and the IAEA announces this, cooperation will be automatically terminated. He recalled that in line with the NPT's fourth article, all nuclear states should render assistance to other states in the development of peaceful nuclear power industry. "So Russia also implements the fourth article of this treaty's provisions," he added. At the same time, he added that Russia takes into account the concern of a number of states on Russian-Iranian cooperation. "In this connection, we have reached an agreement with the Iranian side on that the nuclear fuel delivered to Iran will be returned to Russia as it is used," he recalled. "This is an important element of our cooperation with Iran as regards construction of a station in Bushehr," stressed Mr. Yakovenko
