Iran’s nuclear problem no more dangerous than other international problems, Russian FM says
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov feels that Iran's nuclear problem is no more dangerous than other international problems, The Voice of Russia reported.
He said in an interview with the Sky News Arabiya TV channel that the subsisting differences between the six international mediators and Tehran are no more serious than those in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
Lavrov sees no reason why it is precisely the Iranian problem that should be seen as the one that will inevitably "explode".
Nor does he see the recent talks on Iran's problem in Istanbul and Moscow as a failure because the parties to the talks have set forth their stance on specific issues in a most clear-cut way.
When answering a question about Israel's military threats to Iran, Lavrov said he did not believe that the problem could be settled through the steady and long-term use of military force.
