Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned Israel and western countries not to attempt to stop Iran’s nuclear program through military means.
“Attempts to prepare and implement strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities and on its infrastructure as a whole are a very, very dangerous idea. We hope these ideas will not come to fruition,” Lavrov said at his annual news conference, according to a report by Reuters.
He also said he believes Iran would be open to negotiating to allow international inspectors to visit its nuclear facilities.
