Russia: No deadline for Iranian reply in atomic dispute
Russia has set no deadline for Iran to respond to an offer from six world powers aimed at resolving Tehran's nuclear standoff with the West, Russia's UN ambassador said on Wednesday.

 

 

"We haven't set any deadlines ourselves for their response and there is ongoing dialogue," Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters.” Washington said the six had agreed to consider a fourth sanctions resolution at the UN Security Council. Churkin said the issue had not been raised in New York. (Reuters)
