    MUNICH, February 7 (RIA Novosti corr. Alexei Berezin) - Deliveries of nuclear technologies cause Russia's concern and anxiety, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said.

    "I agree with IAEA head El Baradei's wording that what the public learnt in Pakistan is the tip of the iceberg," he told a Munich press conference.

    Earlier the minister said the possibility of reception from Pakistan of nuclear technologies and components by different countries and regimes who are eager to possess nuclear weapons, as well as by extremist and terrorist groups, has become very high recently.

    On its part, Russia supports the efforts of the international community aimed at Pakistan's joining nonproliferation regimes, Ivanov stressed.
