U.S. concerns over Iranian-Russian nuclear cooperation are the result of "dis-information" by Israel, a reformist Iranian newspaper charged Saturday.
"As some Russian leaders have said, the United States' opposition to peaceful cooperation on atomic energy between Iran and Russia stems from a spirit of jealousy and revenge," Mardom-Salari wrote.
However, the daily also claimed that "the other explanation of the US position is the erroneous intelligence the Israelis have been feeding the Americans."
Mardom-Salari said "the Americans are dis-informed by Israel, which claims it fears Iran might have access to the atomic weapon.
"Iran has no nuclear cooperation of a military nature with Russia," the newspaper added. (Albawaba.com)
