Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Larov says talks on Iran's nuclear program will resume soon. He hopes the negotiations will be based on Moscow's ideas.

His Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi says the country is ready to talk and praises Russia's proposal for its "step-by-step" approach to the dispute.

Lavrov also says the Bushehr nuclear plant, that Russia had agreed to construct in the 1990s, would start operating very soon and that the date was being agreed with Iran.

But details of the Russian aid is still not known. The US, China, Russia, Britain, France, and Germany have been pushing Iran to meet UN Security Council demands not to produce nuclear weapons.

The last round of talks was in January.
