In the meeting in Moscow, Kazem Jalali and Rosatom Deputy Director General for International Relations Nikolay Spassky stressed the need to promote cooperation between Iran and Russia in the peaceful nuclear industry.

They also called for continued meetings and cooperation between the two countries against the US’ irresponsible pressures on the 2015 nuclear deal.

In February, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said Tehran and Moscow continue their consultations on their nuclear cooperation.

“We are conducting consultations on various aspects of our nuclear cooperation. Rosatom and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran are coordinating their schedules directly. We are not dragging this on, while it is clear that the situation has not improved, compared to the moment when the project (at Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility) was suspended. But we will hold consultations,” Ryabkov said after Rosatom suspended work on revamping a factory at Fordow due to an issue with uranium compatibility.
