MOSCOW, October 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov hopes that there will never be an attack on Iran.
“We do hope that such a strike will never happen,” he said. “That would be the surest way of undermining the efforts for settling all issues concerning the Iranian nuclear program.”
Lavrov recalled that the use of force invariably triggered resistance.
“It is most important to focus on negotiations within the sextet,” he said.
“Preparations are underway for a meeting in this format plus Iran at the deputy minister level,” Lavrov said, adding that there had been certain progress in arranging for a meeting between the IAEA and Teheran.
“This makes one hopeful there is a way out of this dead end,” Lavrov said. “Now I would warn all those who are devising panic scenarios. Everybody should be encouraged to conduct a dialogue.”
