Medvedev: Iran's deal with Turkey may not be enough

May 17, 2010 19:04

KIEV, Ukraine — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday cautiously welcomed an agreement between Iran, Brazil and Turkey, but added that the deal may fail to fully satisfy the international community.

Medvedev said that Iran's plans to continue uranium enrichment could continue to cause international worries.

Iran agreed to ship most of its low-enriched uranium to Turkey after talks with Brazil and Turkey. The agreement appeared similar to a UN-drafted plan that Washington and its allies have been pressing Teheran to accept for the past six months.

Medvedev said during a trip to Ukraine that Iran apparently still intends to continue its own uranium enrichment, and that would continue to cause concerns.
