March 28, 2006, Radio Free Europe -- Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov today demanded that Iran give an "unambiguous" agreement or refusal to Russia's offer to process the Islamic republic's nuclear fuel.
Ivanov said such a move would help clear up "worries" in the international community over Iran's nuclear program.
The West believes Iran's nuclear program may conceal an effort to develop nuclear weapons, which Iran denies.
Foreign ministers from the UN Security Council permanent members (China, France, Great Britain, Russia, and the United States), plus Germany, are due to meet in Berlin on March 30 to try to build consensus on what action to take on Iran.
Britain today said it hopes the meeting will produce an agreement. China's Foreign Ministry also expressed hope for the meeting, saying there is still room for negotiation.
