Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that his government was prepared to adopt "measures" against Iran's nuclear program, but that a European draft Security Council resolution went too far. Lavrov declined to say what changes Russia would like to see to the draft resolution, drawn up by Britain, France and Germany, but he said: "Measures which we would introduce would have to be reasonable, take account of the real situation, should be proportional to the actual situation with regards to the nuclear program in Iran." The European draft calls for a UN ban on the supply of material and technology that could contribute to Iran's nuclear and missile programs and impose a travel ban and asset freeze on companies, individuals and organizations involved in those programs.
