Russia says may support Iran nuclear sanctions

MOSCOW, March 25 (BestGrowthStock) – Russia could support additional
sanctions on Iran but any measures must be focused only on
preventing the proliferation of nuclear materials, Russia’s
foreign ministry said on Thursday.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Nesterenko said Russia
wanted to continue dialogue to resolve the Iranian nuclear
problem.

“If there is no visible progress in this direction, then we
do not exclude the possibility of putting additional pressure on
the Iranians with the help of sanctions,” Nesterenko told
reporters at a weekly briefing in Moscow.

“But… such sanctions must be directed exclusively on the
resolution of non-proliferation tasks and not aimed at the
financial and economic suffocation of this country,” he said.
