The United States asked Russia to send Iran a message that the upcoming round of international talks Tehran agreed to over its nuclear program would be its last chance to avoid a military confrontation, Russian newspaper Kommersant reported Wednesday according to a diplomatic source.

The unusually stark warning by the US was passed on by Secretary of State Hilary Clinton to her Russian counterpart Segei Lavrov, after the two met in New York on Monday, the diplomatic source told the Russian newspaper.

The source said pressure from Jerusalem on Washington was forcing the latter to support a military option within the year in order to stop Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb.

"The invasion will happen before the year's end," the source told Kommersant. "The Israelis are, in effect, blackmailing Obama: either he supports the war, or risks losing the support [of the Jewish lobby]" the year of US presidential elections.

The comments came after Tehran said it would agree to renew talks with the P5+1 - a group that includes the United States, Russia, France, China, the United Kingdom and Germany.
