Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has declared that there is no evidence to indicate that Iran is trying to produce nuclear weapons, Press TV reported.

"We have no information that Iran is working on the creation of a nuclear weapon," Reuters quoted Putin as saying when asked by a reporter if Iran was close to making an atomic bomb.

Putin's comments came as Russia joined China, Britain, France, Germany and the US in voting in favor of an IAEA resolution on Friday that urged Iran to halt the construction of a uranium enrichment plant.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has so far found no shred of evidence to indicate that Tehran is trying to develop a military nuclear program.
