Russia opposes military action in Iran


BEIJING, Nov. 8 (Xinhuanet) — Russia has also spoken
out against military strikes on Iran, saying it would be a grave
mistake with unpredictable consequences.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov
said, Russia is deeply opposed to any military action against Iran,
though Moscow has supported UN sanctions against Iran over its nuclear
programme.
Lavrov said that talks between Britain,
China, France, Russia, the United States, Germany and Iran should be
resumed as soon as possible.
The country is already under four rounds of sanctions due to its nuclear programme. But it says it’s entirely peaceful.
Political analysts believe that a raid
on Iran’s nuclear facilities would likely provoke Tehran into hugely
disruptive retaliatory measures in the Gulf that would sever shipping
routes and disrupt the flow of oil and gas to export markets.
