President Bush told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday that the United States supports a proposal from Moscow that could deny Iran the ability
to produce nuclear weapons.
"It may provide a way out," National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said of the Russian plan, discussed during an hourlong meeting between the U.S.
and Russian presidents that ranged across a variety of difficult topics.
Russia, a key Iranian ally, has refused to support Bush's eagerness to go to the U.N. Security Council with suspicions Iran is trying to build a
nuclear arsenal. Also, over U.S. objections, Russia is building a nuclear reactor for a power plant in Iran and says it believes Iran's assurances
the plant is for civilian energy use alone.
But Bush praised Putin for several steps Russia has taken that "would reduce the proliferation risks" in Iran, Hadley said.
