Russia has warned Iran that it will not supply the Islamic country with fuel for its new nuclear reactor unless it agrees to suspend nuclear enrichment as per the UN Security Council's orders, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. According to the report, American and Iranian officials said Russian National Security Council head Igor Ivanov presented Ali Hosseini Tash, Iran's deputy chief nuclear negotiator, with the ultimatum last week. Iran and Russia have recently clashed over the Bushehr power plant fuel negotiations, with Russia claiming that the Iranians were late with their payments and delaying the fuel shipment. Teheran has denied the Russian claims and accused Russia of bending to US pressure to penalize Iran for its nuclear ambitions.
