    TEHRAN, March 6 (RIA Novosti) -- Hussein Musavian, the secretary of the Foreign Policy Committee of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) of Iran, gave high marks to the development of cooperation between Russia and Iran in the sphere of peaceful nuclear energy.

    "Russian-Iranian relations are developing rather positively, especially in the sphere of peaceful atom," he said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

    "If Russia continues to meet its obligations on the construction of the first phase of the Busher nuclear power station, I think, the level of our cooperation will climb even higher," Mr. Musavian added.

    Speaking about the possibility of Russia acting as an intermediary in the negotiation process between Iran and the European Union on the settlement of Iranian nuclear programs issue, Mr. Musavian stated, "Russia, being a member of the UN Security Council, can certainly play a more effective role in the solution of this problem and help to achieve a positive outcome of the talks between Tehran and the EU."

    An international conference Nuclear technologies and sustainable development is currently under way in the Iranian capital. In the framework of the forum, Secretary of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council Hasan Rowhani stated, "Iran will resume its uranium enrichment programs and suspend the implementation of an additional protocol to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, if the so-called "Iranian dossier" is submitted to the UN Security Council for revision."
