(Itar-Tass) -- No drafts of a U.N. Security Council resolution on Iran's nuclear programme exist on paper, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
No one is talking about a vote in the Security Council now, Lavrov said after a meeting of six world powers on Iran in London on Friday.
He reiterated Russia's position that all steps should bring negotiations closer, not punish Iran or isolate it because this will only exacerbate the crisis and increase non-proliferation risks, reports Trend.
Additional steps will be aimed solely at encouraging Iran to accept the proposals of the six powers, he said.
The minister noted that the six world powers had confirmed their commitment to holding further talks on Iran.
The proposals of the parties remain on the table and we are ready for the dialogue, he said after a meeting with his counterparts from the United States, Britain, France, Germany, and China.
I think this is the most important result of the meeting, he added.
Lavrov said Russia had strongly confirmed its intention to consult other U.N. Security Council members on additional steps that may encourage Iran to accept international mediators' proposals.
