Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called for a cautious approach to the mounting crisis over Iran's nuclear program, saying the nations involved must focus on preventing nuclear proliferation. "The most important thing is not to focus on aspects that cause sensations, such as when the issue reaches the United Nations, when the Security Council makes a decision," Lavrov said Thursday after talks with French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy. "The most important thing is to pursue the main task: to do everything possible to prevent a violation of the nuclear nonproliferation regime," he said. "If we focus on that task and don't use the situation to resolve political tasks unrelated to the nonproliferation program, we will achieve success," Lavrov said. He added that "in this situation it is essential not to harm the global community, the nuclear nonproliferation regime."
