Opposition to Iran Sanctions

Russia's UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, said Moscow opposes new sanctions against Iran and believes negotiations with Tehran on its disputed nuclear program can be resumed.

He said Russia also believes that threats of possible military action against Iran over its nuclear program are unhelpful, and he urged the international community to try and promote dialogue.
