Anger at Russia-Iran nuclear ties ---- (August 1, 2002)
This is an old story. It was reported by CNN and CBS, and by others. So why are they acting like this is some type of recent news???
=================================================================== /

MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- The United States is calling on Russia to cease its nuclear co-operation with Iran, a country the U.S. brands part of an "axis of evil."

He said: "Iran is aggressively pursuing nuclear weapons as well as other weapons of mass destruction and long-range missiles.

"For that reason we have consistently urged Russia to cease all nuclear co-operation with Iran, including its assistance to the reactor in Bushehr."

But Bush urged Putin to stop providing weapons technology to Iran, warning the Russian leader: "If you arm Iran, you're liable to have the weapons pointed at you."
