No evidence Iran building nuclear bomb: Putin; Russia warns against hasty Iran action: report

(AFP) Russia has no evidence that Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon, President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday after talks in Moscow with his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy.

“We do not have information that Iran is trying to create a nuclear weapon. We operate on the principle that Iran does not have those plans,” Putin said.

He added that Russia shared the West’s desire for Iran’s nuclear programme, in which Russia is building the first civilian power station, to be “absolutely transparent.”

Russia warns against hasty Iran action: report

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it would be irresponsible to take hasty action on Iran’s atomic program before the United Nations nuclear watchdog completes its work, the RIA news agency reported.

“Until the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) reports on what is going on in Iran, until we receive these answers, it would be irresponsible to make any sharp movements,” Lavrov was quoted by RIA as saying.

“When we hear calls to use force against Iran, which has fallen foul of IAEA rules, then we question what this could lead to,” Lavrov was quoted by RIA as saying.

President Vladimir Putin is to travel to Tehran next week for talks with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Russia has opposed tougher sanctions on Iran, which the United States and leading European Union states believe is trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of its civilian atomic program.
