(www.irna.ir) вЂ" Russian President Vladimir Putin here on Thursday stressed Iranians' right to acquire advanced nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
He made the remarks at a news conference in Kremlin where he underlined the need for finding a way to ensure Iran's right to access civilian nuclear technology and to remove any concerns in this respect.
Pointing to the enhanced cooperation between Iran and Russia in all arenas including military and technical fields, he added that Moscow will continue negotiations with the Western parties to settle Tehran's nuclear problem, reports Trend.
Referring to the Russian Security Council Secretary Igor Ivanov's recent visit of Tehran, Putin noted that the event will help the parties involved to adopt close stance on the issue.
Iran should try to settle the dispute over its nuclear program by continuing cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), he said.
He expressed hope that given the all parties' cooperation and considering IAEA Director General Mohamed Elbaradei's suggestion, Iran's nuclear dossier would be settled through diplomatic manners.
