Former US Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed hope Wednesday for a peaceful and diplomatic resolution to Iran's nuclear row. "I think we can handle that one diplomatically," Powell said in a keynote speech at a Seoul forum, saying that Teheran appeared determined to move toward having a nuclear program and perhaps nuclear weapons. He did not elaborate. His comments came a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a veiled warning against any attack on Iran as he began the first visit by a Kremlin leader to Teheran in six decades. Many Iranians fear that the United States could attack their country over the West's suspicions that the Iranians are secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons.
