IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Yerevan, April 3, IRNA -- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced at a press conference here Monday IAEA inspectors have never traced any breaching of nuclear NPT agreement in their intensive and ceaseless inspections in Iranian nuclear sites.

Speaking at a joint press conference with his host Armenian counterpart Edward Nalbandian at Armenia Republic’s capital city, Yerevan, Lavrov added, “Even right now the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Inspectors are stationed at Iran’s entire nuclear centers monitoring the Iranians’ entire activities round the clock.”

The Russian top diplomat meanwhile asked the UN nuclear watchdog to dispatch yet more of its inspectors to Iran to further scrutinize the matter painstakingly.

Lavrov said, “Maintaining the presence of that international atomic body’s inspectors in Iran and further strengthening their presence there is of fundamental importance today.”

The Russian minister of foreign affairs once again announced his affiliated country’s strong opposition against any type of so called preemptive attack against Iran, reiterating, “Such attacks are in direct contrast against the UN Charter.”

He added, “There is no military solution for Iran’s nuclear issue.”

Pointing out that all options about Iran would be surveyed, he said, “Yet, only those options that are in accordance with the international laws and the UN Charter would be acceptable.”

The Russian Foreign Minister meanwhile announced his country’s opposition against the unilaterally sanctions by US and the EU against Iran emphatically.
