Russia has also spoken out against military strikes on Iran, saying it would be a grave mistake with unpredictable consequences.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, Russia is deeply opposed to any military action against Iran, though Moscow has supported UN sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme.
Lavrov said that talks between Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States, Germany and Iran should be resumed as soon as possible.
The country is already under four rounds of sanctions due to its nuclear programme. But it says it’s entirely peaceful.
Political analysts believe that a raid on Iran’s nuclear facilities would likely provoke Tehran into hugely disruptive retaliatory measures in the Gulf that would sever shipping routes and disrupt the flow of oil and gas to export markets.
