London, Feb. 05 – Russia called on Iran on Tuesday to freeze uranium enrichment until the UN nuclear watchdog gets to the bottom of key issues over its controversial nuclear program, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported.

In an interview posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official website, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak said Iran should freeze enrichment activity until all of its nuclear program’s “complicated points have been worked out”.

“I believe that all this is entirely achievable if the appropriate political decisions are taken. International concerns can be easily allayed to create more favourable conditions for Iran’s extensive cooperation with other countries”, Kislyak said.

The 15-nation UN Security Council has imposed two sets of sanctions on Tehran for its refusal to halt its uranium enrichment activities which the West suspects is part of a nuclear weapons program.

On January 22, the P5+1 states – Britain, France, Germany, the United States, Russia, and China – announced an agreement on the contents of a third sanctions resolution on Iran, building on resolutions 1696, 1737 and 1747. Resolutions 1737 and 1747 imposed sanctions on Tehran.
