MOSCOW – A senior Russian official says his country is going to continue its nuclear energy cooperation with Iran in spite of concern that Tehran could be trying to develop atomic weapons.

Interfax news agency reports that the deputy foreign minister says Russia will comply with commitments it made in Iran. Russia is in the midst of an 800 (m) million dollar deal to build a nuclear reactor in southern Iran.

The International Atomic Energy Agency is investigating nearly two decades of covert nuclear activity by Iran. Iranian officials say the program is only meant to generate electricity, but the U-S says its a weapons program.

Russia has repeatedly emphasized that Iran has the right to develop a peaceful nuclear energy program. Russia does, however, urge Iran to voluntarily stop efforts to enrich uranium as a sign of goodwill.
