The Iranian nuclear threat will dominate Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's agenda when he visits Russia this week on his first overseas trip since the politically humbling Lebanon war. Russia, a major provider of nuclear technology and arms to Iran, has balked at imposing UN sanctions on Teheran for refusing to curb its nuclear ambitions. "The Iranian threat is a threat to Israel's existence, it is an existential threat to world peace," Olmert told parliament at the opening of its winter session on Monday. Iran's nuclear capability will "stand at the center" of talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he added, a day before embarking on his three-day trip.
