Russia Opposes Use of Force Against Iran

Associated Press Writer

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - The chief of Russia's security council said Sunday that Russia opposes
any use of force against Iran over its controversial nuclear program, the Iranian state-run
television reported.

"Unlike the U.S., Russia believes Iran's nuclear program needs to be resolved only through
dialogue. Any use of force will further complicate the issue and will cause tension in
the region," Igor Ivanov was quoted as saying by the station.

Ivanov made the comments during a meeting with Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani.

Ivanov arrived in Tehran late Saturday to discuss Iran's contentious nuclear program,
including incentives to be offered as a reward if the Islamic Republic suspends uranium
enrichment and possible sanctions if it continues.
