MOSCOW, Oct 10 (Reuters) Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a news briefing with French leader Nicolas Sarkozy today that he has not seen any real evidence that Iran is trying to build a nuclear weapon.
''We do not have data that says Iran is trying to produce nuclear weapons. We do not have such objective data,'' Putin said.
''Therefore we proceed from a position that Iran has no such plans but we share the concern of our partners that all programmes should be as transparent as possible.'' REUTERS PD PM1600
