Moscow expects Teheran to eliminate international concerns about its nuclear program

Moscow believes that Iran should remove all international concerns, including G-8 concerns, about its nuclear program during the June 16 session of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) supervisory council. This was disclosed today by a high-ranking source in the Russian delegation, as he commented on some Western mass-media reports about Russia's position on Iran.

The IAEA supervisory council will, among other things, examine the Iranian issue.

G-8 leaders are discussing Iran's nuclear program rather actively in Evian, the source added.

RIA Novosti's interlocutor once again drew attention to the fact that peaceful Russian-Iranian nuclear cooperation completely tallied with the nuclear-weapons non-proliferation treaty.

He also reminded the correspondent about Jacques Chirac's June 2 statement to the effect that peaceful Russian-Iranian cooperation in the nuclear field didn't make the President of France apprehensive.
