Russia to sell reactors to Iran — but nothing else

Since the breakup of the Soviet Union, Russia has become one of Iran's main arms suppliers, selling it conventional weapons, tanks and anti-aircraft systems.

Rabin cited Iran's financing and training of terror groups and suicide bombers, whose main aim is to stop the peace process.

"Iran is a leader in the war against the peace process and is doing all it can to torpedo it," a statement from the Prime Minister's Office quoted Rabin as telling the visiting Russian dignitary.
