Moscow, Russia - Russia offered Wednesday to resume construction of a nuclear power plant in Iran if Iran will return the spent fuel, the Interfax news agency reported.

At a Moscow news conference, Russian Security Council secretary Igor Ivanov made the offer of returning to the Bushehr facility.

"Iran quite rightfully raises the question that it should have equal access with other countries to advanced technologies, including nuclear technologies used for peaceful purposes," Ivanov said. "Russia is demonstrating in practice that the demand is righteous and therefore we cooperate with Iran."

International concerns were raised that spent nuclear fuel can be reprocessed into weapons-grade uranium, which prompted Russia to suspend its construction of reactors in Iran.
