US, Russia call on Iran to submit to inspections
LONDON, April 1 (AFP) Apr 01, 2009
US President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev called on Iran Wednesday to cooperate with the UN nuclear watchdog and prove its nuclear program is "peaceful" in nature.
The two leaders issued a statement after their talks in London recognising that Iran had a right to a "civilian nuclear program" but added Iran needed to restore confidence in the initiative's "exclusively peaceful nature."
