Russia and China will not vote for the use of force in resolving the Iranian nuclear dispute, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday after meeting with Chinese officials. "China and Russia agree that the Iranian nuclear issue should be resolved through dialogue," Lavrov told reporters. "Russia and China will not vote for the use of force in resolving this issue." The United States earlier sought a UN Security Council resolution to declare the program a threat to world peace and subject Iran to sanctions or even military action if it isn't halted. Beijing and Moscow hold veto power in the council.
