About the perspectives of the Russian-Iranian cooperation in the nuclear field. Political Aspects.


Many specialists consider that because of the anti-Iranian campaign, conducted by the USA, Russia may stop the cooperation with Iran. But the facts say another thing.

During the last visit of the Secretary of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council H. Rowhani to Moscow all the perspectives of the Russian-Iranian cooperation were underlined.

Due to the President of the Russian Federation V.Putin "Iran's recent actions have persuaded Russia that this country does not plan to produce nuclear weapons. It means that we shall continue cooperating with Iran in all spheres, including nuclear energy".

We would like to point out the political consequences and importance of the meeting between Rowhani and Putin:

  1. Putin declared that the Russian Federation is going to continue its cooperation with the Iran in the nuclear field, which means that the Iranian plans of the development of nuclear energy can be realized at least with the Russian help.
  2. Putin showed that Russia is not going to build its policy with Iran with the orientation on the USA, which tries to isolate Iran in its tries to develop nuclear energy.
  3. Rowhani showed that Iran is going to continue the cooperation with Russia in nuclear field which is very important after the articles published in Western newspapers that Iran decided to invite European companies instead of Russians for constructing the Busher-2 nuclear plant.
  4. Putin showed that Russia is not going to support any American anti-Iranian actions in UN SC and anywhere else.

V.Putin's decision to continue cooperation with Iran in all fields shows, that Russia continues view Iran as an important regional partner in the region of Persian gulf, Middle East, South Caucasus and Central Asia.
