Iran is not going to cease its peaceful nuclear programme, said Iranian diplomat Mahmad Hoseinim at the Moscow International Non-Proliferation Conference. "We say 'no' to creating nuclear and other mass destruction weapons and 'yes' to peaceful atomic technologies," Hoseinim quoted the Iranian position worded by president Khatami.
The diplomat expressed his regret for the criticism of Iran that sounded during the press conference of U.S. Ambassador to Russia Alexander Vershbow.
Hoseinim stressed that Russo-Iranian co-operation in the nuclear sphere "is confined to peaceful use of atomic energy and is always under the IAEA control."
