Italy's prime minister Tuesday hailed Russia's efforts to diffuse the ongoing crisis around Iran's nuclear program
Italy's prime minister Tuesday hailed Russia's efforts to diffuse the ongoing crisis around Iran's nuclear program, and said he favored a non-military solution to the impasse. "I am certain that we need a solution completely separate from military intervention," Silvio Berlusconi said during a televised debate with opposition leader Romano Prodi, adding that Russian efforts to solve the problem were especially important. Russian and Iranian officials met in Moscow Tuesday for further closed consultations on Iran's controversial nuclear research program, a source close to the Russian team said Tuesday. The source said the talks involved Seyyed Ali Hosseini-Tash, the deputy head of Iran's influential Supreme National Security Council. The talks are likely to highlight a Russian proposal to enrich uranium for Iran, widely seen as a compromise in the crisis surrounding the Islamic Republic, which many in the West suspect of pursuing a covert nuclear weapons program. Tehran has consistently denied the allegations. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN's nuclear watchdog, referred its file on Iran's nuclear program to the UN Security Council, which has the power to impose sanctions on Iran should the country be found in breach of its international commitments.
