Reuters: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Iran needs to answer the demands of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over its nuclear programme.

PARIS, Sept 7 (Reuters) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday that Iran needs to answer the demands of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over its nuclear programme.

“The IAEA must continue its work … Iran must answer the demands of the IAEA,” Lavrov told a news conference in Paris, where he met French counterpart Bernard Kouchner.

Western powers suspect Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons, a fear heightened by its move in February to start enriching uranium to a level of 20 percent from about 3.5 percent previously, taking it closer to weapons-grade thresholds. Tehran says its programme is peaceful. (Reporting by John Irish; editing by David Stamp)
