Russia will continue cooperation with Iran in the nuclear sphere and does not rule out construction of another nuclear plant. This was announced on Thursday by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

According to him, "cooperation with Iran in the nuclear energy sector is regulated by UN Security Council resolutions."

The Russian diplomat said that this "eliminates the option, where someone other than the UN Security Council might be able to influence work in this sphere."

Ryabkov also stated that "the construction of the Bushehr NPP in Iran showed that Russia is a responsible partner, which finds resolutions to problems that assuage the concerns of our partners."
