Russia Warns Iran on Sanctions
Moscow Times

Russia would not be isolated if other powers reached a consensus on Iran sanctions, said a senior Russian diplomatic source, in Moscow’s most critical comments yet in the ongoing dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program.

“If there is a consensus on Iran sanctions, we will not stand aside,” said the diplomatic source, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation.

“We will be thinking about sanctions but this is not an issue of the next few hours or weeks,” the source said, adding that Moscow did not want to complicate the situation with threats against Tehran.

Tehran caused an international outcry Sunday when it announced plans to build 10 more uranium enrichment sites in retaliation for a rebuke by the UN nuclear agency for covering up an enrichment project for at least two years.
