Medvedev said, "the international community so far has no information that Iran is building nuclear weapons."
Iran has been hit with four sets of UN sanctions over its nuclear program, which the Iranian government says is for civilian nuclear energy. The United States and its allies suspect it is seeking nuclear weapons. Russia is among six world powers that have tried to get Iran to open up its atomic program to international scrutiny.
