Russia's foreign minister says he is "very alarmed" over Iran's failure to prove its nuclear program is peaceful.

Sergey Lavrov spoke on the independent-leaning Ekho Mosvky radio station in an interview Friday.

He said "we are very alarmed, and we cannot accept that Iran is refusing to cooperate" with the global nuclear oversight body, the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Lavrov said he did not understand the need for Iran to conduct its nuclear program in secret, withholding information from the IAEA.
