A senior Russian delegation headed by Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev arrived in Tehran today and is holding talks with senior Iranian officials on ways to resolve issues surrounding Iran’s nuclear program.
Russia has proposed a “step-by-step” approach for the UN and the West to make limited concessions by easing economic sanctions for each step Iran takes toward meeting demands to curb any nuclear weapon-related projects.
