MOSCOW - Russia warned the UN on Tuesday against publishing a report which is expected to heighten suspicion over Iran's nuclear program, saying to do so will strain diplomatic efforts to resolve the major powers' dispute with Tehran.

The Foreign Ministry said the timing of the UN nuclear watchdog's report, due next month, could block any chance of serious talks.

It urged greater delicacy surrounding the publication and chided the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) information about the subject and tone of its upcoming quarterly report.

"It would without a doubt strain the atmosphere and may hinder the start of serious negotiations," the Russian ministry said in a statement on its website.

The IAEA is expected to release a strongly worded document spelling out in detail why it voiced mounting concern last month that Iran may be seeking to build an atom bomb.
