ASTANA - Russia urged Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday to be "more constructive" in his cooperation with global powers on nuclear issues, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

Ahmadinejad met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev after a meeting of a regional security bloc in the Kazakh capital Astana.

"We raised the question with Ahmadinejad about the necessity of more constructive cooperation with 5+1 and, more importantly, about increasing the transparency of contacts between Iran and the [International Atomic Energy Agency]," Lavrov told reporters ater the meeting.

The 5+1 refers to the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany.
