Russia Opposes Iran Report

The Foreign Ministry has warned the United Nations against publishing a report that is expected to heighten suspicion over Iran's nuclear program, saying to do so will strain diplomatic efforts to resolve the major powers' dispute with Tehran.

The ministry said the timing of the UN nuclear watchdog's report, due next month, could block any chance of serious talks.
