WASHINGTON - The United States denied on Thursday a Russian media report that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had asked Russia to warn that Iran it was facing its "last chance" to resolve the dispute over its nuclear program diplomatically.

"The secretary did not send a warning to the Iranians through (Russian) Foreign Minister (Sergei) Lavrov," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters when asked about a report on Wednesday in the Moscow daily Kommersant.

Asked if Clinton had used the word "last" in talks with Lavrov on Monday, Nuland replied: "She didn't use that adjective in her meeting."
