Russia says 'can't wait forever' on Iran nuclear issue

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday world powers "can't wait forever" for Iran to end its defiance over its nuclear program, Russian news agencies reported.


Speaking in London after meeting US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Lavrov stopped short of supporting new sanctions against Iran, according to remarks quoted by state-run RIA Novosti. But he warned that Western pressure for sanctions has been mounting since Tehran refused to accept international offers including a UN-brokered proposal to send its uranium abroad for processing.
