Russian Foreignmin knows nothing about foreign companies delivering nuclear technologies to Iran

The Russian Foreign Ministry knows nothing about the European concern Urenco being involved in nuclear fuel deliveries to Iran, Alexander Yakovenko, the official spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, told a Monday press conference at RIA Novosti.

Earlier, media had reported that the uranium-enriching equipment discovered in Iran had been delivered by the Anglo-Dutch-German company Urenco.

On another occasion, the USA had accused Russia of providing Iran with nuclear fuel-enriching centrifuges.

Moscow does co-operate with Tehran as far as peaceful use of atomic energy is concerned, but it has its apprehensions about Iran having its own military nuclear program.
