Russia's president has left open the possibility that world powers could impose additional sanctions on Iran for its controversial nuclear program.

Speaking in Moscow, Dmitri Medvedev said that while sanctions are not very effective, they are necessary in some situations.

Next month, Russian mediators are expected to join counterparts from the United States, Britain, France, Germany and China for talks with Iran on global security and economic issues. They are likely to meet in Turkey and although Iran has said its nuclear program is not open for debate, the talks are expected to focus on the controversy.

I believe that this Russian Stance is directly related to the fact that Obama accepted to abandon the Anti Missile Shield in Poland in exchange for Russia's cooperation on isolating Iran both diplomatically and economically.

Do I support such Sanctions against Iran's illegitimate government and ruthless regime ? Yes !

Hope that answers your question.


DK, do you know what...

"leaves open possibility" really means. I sure don't. And would you be kind enough to elaborate on your remark about "isolating Mahmoud". Don't you mean isolating Iran but you are too good-hearted to say it?
