Medvedev: Deal Exists for Iran Nuclear Sanctions

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is downplaying the existence of tensions between Tehran and Russia in an interview with Lebanon's LBC TV Saturday. His words follow a warning by Russian President Dmitri Medvedev that Iranian leaders must "listen to the voice of the world community," or face new sanctions.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad downplayed the significance of a warning by Russian President Dmitri Medvedev Saturday to Tehran to "stop behaving irresponsibly," over its nuclear program.

Mr. Ahmadinejad told Lebanon's LBC TV that "tensions between Iran and Russia exist, but that Russian politicians behave cautiously with regard to their interests." Russia has close ties to Iran and its nuclear program as chief architect of the yet-to-be finished Bushehr nuclear power plant.
