Iran-Russia-Nuclear
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak said here Saturday that Iran's unclear activities are fully under supervision of IAEA in reference to the clean health bill Iran got from International Atomic Energy Agency on November 15.

He told reporters that IAEA has verified Iranian nuclear program monitoring Iranian activities and it is not possible for them to enrich uranium at higher degree.

Rejecting the allegation made by US national intelligence estimates (NIE) that Iran had weapons program before 2003, he said that Russia doubts the possibility Iran had weapons program before 2003.

He expressed objection to US plans to set up missile base in Europe in the name of missile defense shield to defuse Iran's missile threat and said it is not justifiable.

The best way out of the current situation is negotiations to help thwart possible threats, he said.

He cited outcome of talks between Russia and the US on US missile shield in Europe and the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) as disappointing.

Russia has opted out of CFE treaty saying that it belonged to the cold war era.
