MOSCOW, June 20 (UPI) -- Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Russian President Vladimir Putin are supporting Iran's right to develop a nuclear energy system.

In a joint statement released from the two officials, Badawi and Putin said they support the Middle Eastern nation's rights regarding its efforts to build a nuclear energy-based program, Itar-Tass reported Wednesday.

The Malaysian and Russian politicians added, however, that while they support Iran's rights, they were not pleased with the nation's negative response to the international community on the matter.

Badawi and Putin said the resolutions offered to Iran from the United Nations Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency were made with the best intentions.

The political pair said the resolutions were an attempt to increase confidence in Iran's nuclear program and urged the nation to cooperate with the international community.

The Russian news agency said the statement also warned Iran that both Malaysia and Russia would push for Iranian compliance to all related international agreements.
