Russia is interested in developing the broadest possible relations with Iran
Russia is interested in developing the broadest possible relations with Iran, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak said at the end of a Tehran visit by a Russian delegation led by Security Council Deputy Secretary Valentin Sobolev. “Russia is interested in developing the broadest and most diversified relations with Iran and this work will continue,” Kislyak told Tass. “Iran is our neighbor and a country that we believe is an important factor in the region,” he said. Earlier Sobolyev said that “many our views concerning developments in the region coincide,” stressing that the two countries will especially cooperate in fighting drug trafficking and terrorism. Neither Iranian nor Russian officials disclosed any specific results of the talks that apparently centered of Russia’s proposal to set up a joint venture engaged in uranium enrichment on the Russian territory. The joint statement crowning the talks only mentioned “the initiative was discussed in details.” The talks will continue in Moscow as it has been agreed that an Iranian delegation will visit the Russian capital in February. Negotiations were “detailed, open and professional,” a source in the Russian delegation told Tass. The source conceded said that the parties “do not share common approaches to all the aspects of the (Iranian nuclear) problem” but expressed confidence that contacts will continue. The source reiterated Russia’s stance that the Iranian nuclear problem “shall be solved in the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) through cooperation of all parties involved.”
