Russia will not allow the UN Security Council to be used to punish Iran over its nuclear program, the foreign minister said. "We won't be able to support and will oppose any attempts to use the Security Council to punish Iran or use Iran's program in order to promote the ideas of regime change there," Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with the Kuwaiti News Agency KUNA which was posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry's Web site Saturday. Russia was ready to discuss ways to pressure Iran into accepting a broader international oversight of its nuclear program, but "any measures of influence should encourage creating conditions for talks," Lavrov said Friday.
