Russia considers nuclear co-operation with Iran
While in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated Tehran’s intention to continue working with Moscow on nuclear energy. “We are negotiating power generation using nuclear energy with Russia,” Rouhani told journalists on 27 September. “We will continue co-operation with Russia, as well as with other nations.”Rouhani said Tehran was, so far, satisfied with the results of this collaboration – a statement that carries a serious political message. First, Rouhani demonstrated to the Russians that the idea of extending co-operation with the Kremlin has support from the top level of the Iranian political establishment.
