Moscow more than willing to extend nuclear partnership with Iran
Moscow intends to continue to help Tehran in the implementation of Iran nuclear deal, as parties agreed on plans for construction of 8 nuclear power plants in Iran, said Russian President Vladimir Putin on Fri.
Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow will continue to further help Iran in carrying out its nuclear program action plan, state news agency RIA Novosti has reported.
“Plans have been agreed on the construction of eight more nuclear reactors in Iran by Russian specialists. We will continue to help our Iranian partners in the implementation of the JCPOA, which includes working with enriched uranium and producing stable isotopes,” Putin said in an interview with Azerbaijan's state news agency AZERTAC on the eve of his visit to Baku.
The Russian leader expressed confidence that the development of Iran’s nuclear program will reduce tension surrounding Iran and benefit bilateral relations.
"This is especially true for joint work in the field of peaceful nuclear energy, such as Iran’s first nuclear power plant in Bushehr that was built by Russian technologies,” he said.
Putin further noted that Russia and Iran intend to increase joint trade cooperation; “during the first five months of this year, the volume of our bilateral trade grew by 70 percent, to $855 million,” he added.
President Putin will meet with President Rouhani in a trilateral meeting with President Aliyev in Azerbaijan’s capital Baku on August 8.
