Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Monday that Iran was approaching the point at which it would be able to make nuclear weapons, Reuters reported.
Peres: Russia is
taking Iran seriously
report on Iran 'worrying'
During a meeting of international ambassadors in Moscow, Medvedev said "Iran is moving closer to possessing the potential which in principle could be used for the creation of nuclear weapons."
The statement was a rare public admission by the Kremlin that Iran may
have the intention of building a nuclear weapon. Reuters said the
statement came after an argument with Iran over Russia's support of
sanctions against Iran.
Though the US and the EU suspect Iran is attempting to build nuclear
weapons, Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful.
