Azerbaijan, Baku /corr. Trend D.Khatinoglu / Russia supplies fuel to Iran within the obligations and bilateral agreements, but it can not empower it to require that Iran should cease uranium enrichment.
"Although Russia supplies fuel to Iran, it has not the right to require official Tehran to cease uranium enrichment," said the Chairman of Urosevic Research Fundation Of London Piruz Mojtahedzadeh, said in his interview with Trend.
On 28 December the Deputy Chairman of the Atomic Organization of Iran, Ahmad Fayyaz, briefed the media that Russia provided fuel to Busher Atomic Station for the second time. According to him, 82 tons of the nuclear fuel will be supplied at eight stages. Currently Moscow supplied 22 tons of the atomic energy. The Foreign Minister of Russia said several days ago that the Russian Federation supplies fuel to the atomic station in Iran and this country does not need to enrich uranium.
The Professor of Tehran University of Geopolitics, Mojtahedzadeh reported to Trend on 28 December by telephone that in the issue of nuclear, Russia supports the position of Iran which meets its interests and it is natural.
"However, Moscow demand to cease uranium enrichment is absurd. The agreement on nuclear fuel between Russia and Iran envisaged Busher Station. Iran has several atomic stations and they should be supplied with nuclear fuel. Thus, Iran should itself enrich uranium," Mojtahedzadeh said.
According to the Fund's Chairman, Russia's actions with regards to Iran and West corresponds its interests within the geo-political games and it is natural that Tehran should not expect condescension.
The West says that if Iran does not give up its plan on uranium enrichment, more pressures will be put on the country. Despite that there are differences between the permanent members of the UN Security Council with regards to implementation of new sanctions against Iran, the USA states that is it is sure in applying the third resolution against Iran at the beginning of 2008.
According to him, the USA has not problems with the nuclear issues, but it deals with the conflict between Iran and Israel.
"Ideological confrontation exists between Iran and the USA. The USA's pressure on Iran with regards to the nuclear issue yielded opposite results. The USA lost this game. We have been clearly observing this in the past two months. Promises by the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, to begin direct discussions between the two countries provided that the uranium enrichment should be cease and the final report of the US National Information Center regarding Iran's production of nuclear weapons are the indicator of the unsuccessful policy of Iran," the expert said. According to him, the third resolution of the UN Security Council is not expected to be approved against Iran, but if it is approved, the Iranian side will indifferently approach it.
