TEHRAN, October 10 (RIA Novosti) - Russia and Iran will sign a contract to provide fuel for the nuclear power plant in Bushehr in the near future, in addition to a document on spent fuel return to Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told journalists on Sunday following talks with his Iranian counterpart Kamal Kharrazi.

Mr. Lavrov pointed out Russo-Iranian relations are developing under no pressure exerted by the US or any other state.

The Russian Foreign Minister made comments on an Iranian newspaper carrying allegations that Russia had given consent to a military campaign against Iran in exchange for $5 bln from the U.S. "Where does that come from? If you are trying to find conspiracy of the kind behind Iran's back, I can assure you that you are mistaken," Mr. Lavrov stressed. According to him, such allegations are wrong and groundless.

"I confirmed that the Russian President remembers the invitation, and the date of his arrival will be specified later," the official said.
