NEW DELHI - There can be no time limit on efforts to end the confrontation over Iran's nuclear program and Israel appears to be over-estimating the danger posed by Tehran, a senior Russian diplomat said in an interview on Thursday.

Russia's point man for Iran diplomacy, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, was speaking ahead of talks between Tehran and global powers including the United States expected to resume next month after a freeze of more than a year.

Ryabkov told Reuters that Moscow was increasingly concerned that the stand-off over Iran's defiant pursuit of nuclear power despite several UN resolutions demanding that it desist could spark a military conflict.

He said Iran had increased cooperation with the UN nuclear agency's efforts to make sure it is not after nuclear weapons, urging the five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany to display "equal readiness" for serious talks.
