Russia warns against attack on Iran

Military action against Iran would be a “very serious mistake fraught with unpredictable consequences”, Russia’s foreign minister has war­ned, according to the BBC. Sergei Lavrov said diplomacy, not missile strikes, was the only way to solve the Iranian nuclear problem. His comments come after Israeli Presi­dent Shimon Peres said an attack on Iran was becoming more likely. The UN’s atomic watchdog is ex­pected to say this week that Iran is secretly developing a nuclear arms capability. Iran has always insisted that its nuclear programme is exclusively to generate power for civilian purposes.
