Russia to Veto Any UN Motion for Strikes on Iran [View all]
Russia will scuttle any UN Security Council resolution that could be interpreted as allowing military action against Iran, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has warned.
"As the Libyan experience has shown, sadly, a military scenario is possible," he said in an interview with the daily Rossiiskaya Gazeta, as cited by RIA Novosti, when asked whether Israel or the United States could start military operations in Iran.
Russia will therefore exercise an extremely cautious approach at the UN Security Council, he added.
"We won't allow any more such disingenuous interpretations. We will see to it that no resolution is open to interpretation like the one on Libya," he said.
