Russia urges Iran to cooperate fully with IAEA

Russia's Foreign Ministry on Saturday urged Iran to "respond constructively" to the UN nuclear watchdog's call for full cooperation. Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin said in a statement that Moscow is calling on Teheran to "respond constructively to the (IAEA) board's call for full cooperation in resolving the remaining problems, including the restoration of a voluntary moratorium on all uranium enrichment works." He did not mention an Iranian official statement saying Teheran considered Russia's enrichment offer dead following the IAEA decision to refer Iran to the UN Security Council.
