Speaking about the situation concerning Iran, Primakov, who is currently the head of the Russian Foreign Trade Bureau, said "As Russia, we are in a sensitive position. We defend the right of Iran to have peaceful nuclear atomic technology. We advice that as a guarantee of the fact that they won't use this technology for weapons, that the enriched uranium for their use be produced in Russia under joint control and inspection. This is a way out of the crisis for Iran. Recognizing this, Tehran should accept Russia's offer, which still stands."
