Russian FM: Iran should halt centrifuge production

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on Iran to take a first step and "freez[e] the production of centrifuges," saying that such a step would prevent fresh sanctions against it.
If Iran makes that first step, Lavrov said in a CNN interview Sunday, Russia won't "adopt new sanctions, neither in the Security Council nor unilaterally."Saying that the only way to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue is through negotiations, he added, "I believe that if Iran gets a very clear message [that this] is not about regime change but about non-proliferation issues, I believe we have a chance to start these serious discussions."
