Iran's chief nuclear negotiator says Russia's proposal to carry out sensitive nuclear fuel work outside Iran is not sufficient for the Islamic country's energy needs.

Ali Larijani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, told reporters Friday in Tehran the plan can be considered as part of a package, but that alone it is insufficient.

Moscow's idea to have Iran enrich uranium in facilities in Russia, where the work can be closely monitored, is seen as a way out of a growing crisis over Tehran's nuclear ambitions. It has been backed by the United States, China and the European Union.

Iran has shifted its views of the plan, prompting some western diplomats to accuse Tehran of trying to buy time and avoid being referred to the U.N. Security Council.
