Yahoo News/ Reuters:Russia's Medvedev says Iran nuclear talks must go on
Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev has asked Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to continue dialogue on the Iranian nuclear issue, Medvedev's spokeswoman said on Thursday.
At Medvedev's initiative, the two leaders discussed the Iranian nuclear programme in Tajikistan's capital, Dushanbe, where they were attending a Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting.
"The Russian president raised the possibility of continuing the dialogue and the discussion," Medvedev's spokeswoman, Natalia Timakova, told reporters without giving further details.
Western powers fear Tehran wants to build an atomic bomb but Iran says it is developing nuclear technology only to generate electricity.
Correction to Reuters: Iran has stopped saying they do not seek nukes as weapons. They admitted to acquiring and possession of documents on how to build the bombs and mount them on missiles. Now what country does that and enrich weapons grade uranium without attempt to build a nuke?
