Medvedev stated sanctions "are not producing the desired results". He also said Iran "is behaving in a far from the best manner," according to RIA Novosti.

"We expect Russia, as a major power, not to be deceived by Western espionage services," Boroujerdi told the Mehr News Agency on Tuesday.

Boroujerdi, Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said such irresponsible and unsubstantiated remarks by certain foreign officials about Iran's nuclear program are not new.

U.S. fabrications should not influence Russian officials, the ranking legislator added.

He went on to say that the International Atomic Energy Agency's inspectors have always been able to come to Iran to inspect its nuclear facilities.

The former diplomat reiterated Tehran's strong opposition to the production and stockpile of nuclear bombs and said Tehran wants Russia to join the countries, which oppose nuclear weapons. He also suggested that Russia should eradicate its nuclear bombs.
