Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Saturday that any measures the United Nations Security Council agrees to impose against Iran should be only for a limited time, Russian news agencies reported. Lavrov, returning from a visit to the European Union headquarters in Brussels, said any measures "should have a precise limitation on the period for their being in effect, and it should be written in the document what mechanism will be used to end these measures," the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. "We are prepared to accept measures against Iran, so attempts to accuse us of refusing to accept the resolution are absolutely baseless," he was quoted as saying. Lavrov called on all sides to be "pragmatic."
