Russia has welcomed Iran's decision to hold technical discussions about the supply of 20-percent- enriched fuel for the Tehran research reactor, Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko said on Tuesday.

According to a statement on the ministry's website, Iran on Monday sent a letter to the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukio Amano, in which Tehran " announced its consent for holding expert meeting to discuss technical issues of the reactor's work."

"We are ready for such a meeting. We also confirm the importance of Brazil and Turkey's participation in this meeting," said the spokesman in the statement.

"The successful implementation of this scheme will help restore confidence that Iran's nuclear program has only peaceful purposes, " Nesterenko said.

"We once again call on Tehran to start dialogue with the Iran Six (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) to settle the situation around the Iranian nuclear program," he added.
