Iranian Nuclear Official Visit to Moscow Postponed

Iran's director of Supreme National Security Council and chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili’s visit to Russia was postponed today hours before his scheduled departure from Tehran. He was to meet with the Russian premier and the country’s head of atomic energy agency during his three-day visit to Moscow [ISNA, 26 January]. No new date for the visit was announced.

On Monday, a day before Jalili’s departure, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi met with Russian ambassador to Tehran Alexander Sadovnikov to discuss nuclear cooperation between the two countries.

"The existing issues in relation to nuclear cooperation were discussed at the meeting on the eve of a visit to Moscow by SNSC Secretary Saeed Jalili," AEOI's spokesman Ali Shirzadian said [Fars News Agency, 25 January].
