According to the Ria-Novosti ( A Russian News Agency), Sergei Mironev, who is in Jerusalem to attend 60th anniversary of establishment of the Zionist regime in occupied Palestine, told reporters on Wednesday, "Iran as an independent country has the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful goals under control of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)."
Underscoring Russian stance on the issue, Mironev said production of atomic weapons by Iran is impossible and continued, "We believe Iran's access to the weapon is very dangerous."
Concerning Russia-Iran nuclear cooperation, he said the cooperation has no danger regarding expansion of nuclear weapons and is continuing under full observation of international standards.
He added, "Russia is obliged to its commitments on Iran until Iran is committed to the IAEA control standards and there would be no danger in this concern."
The Federation Council is the upper chamber of the Federal Assembly and consists of 178 deputies.
