Moscow, Nov 16 (UNI) Iranian ambassador to Russia Gholam-Reza Ansari today said recent report by Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Mohammed ElBaradei depicted the real situation surrounding Iran's nuclear programme and any unilateral action could damage the settlement process.

''Iran does not believe in nuclear weapons and it is against the creation of nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons are not in Iran's nuclear doctrine. ElBaradei's report is a strong argument for resolving the situation,'' Ansari said.

''The main problem is to restore confidence. We believe that ElBaradei's report allows the six-power mediators to better see the actual situation in Iran. Any unilateral action by the US or any other country damages the process,'' he told Interfax news agency.

''We believe that the six mediators have various interests in Iran. Building confidence is a must. We have a proposal to that effect-- to hold negotiations to dispel the doubts. When there is trust, there can be cooperation,'' Ansari said.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is expected to visit Russia in early December, he said.

Meanwhile, deputy director for quality at the plant Konstantin Grabelnikov told reporters that IAEA inspectors will visit the Novosibirsk chemical concentrate plan on November 26-29 to check and seal containers with nuclear fuel meant for delivery to the Bushehr nuclear power plant under construction in Iran.

The fuel will be shipped to Bushehr ''when the need arises at the site and corresponding instructions are received,'' he said.
