Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the revised draft of a UN Security Council resolution to punish Iran over its nuclear program would not disrupt Russia's construction of an atomic energy plant in Iran, news agencies reported Monday. France and Britain, both permanent council members, on Friday circulated a revised UN resolution narrowing proposed sanctions on Teheran for refusing to stop its uranium enrichment program.
