Russia Opposes Oil Sanctions

Russia opposes U.S. and possible European oil sanctions against Iran, even if Tehran presses ahead with uranium enrichment, which Western powers say serves military goals, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday

"Regardless of any conditions ... be those the conditions in which the Iranian nuclear program expands or others, we are against the application of such measures against Iran," he was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.
