Iran says US pressure "wrecking" Russian offer

Written by: Staff

Moscow, March 2: Iran's nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani today (Mar 2, 2006) said that the United States, by pressing for Iran to be reported to the UN Security Council over its nuclear programme, was threatening a Russian compromise proposal, Interfax news agency said.

"The insistence of the American side on sending the Iranian nuclear dossier to the UN security Council shows that the Russian proposal is being wrecked," Larijan was quoted as saying at a news conference.

He spoke after talks with Russian officials on Moscow's offer to Iran to enrich uranium on Russian soil to end the confrontation with the West, which suspects Tehran of seeking to build an atomic weapon.

Larijani added no new date had been set for a fresh round of talks on the proposal.
