Russia hopes Iran nuclear talks will resume soon

SOCHI, Russia - Russia believes there is a good chance that talks between global powers and Iran on Tehran's nuclear program could resume soon despite a planned EU oil embargo and other sources of tension, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
"We still have a strong hope to resume talks in the nearest future," Lavrov told reporters, referring to long-dormant talks between Iran and six global powers - Russia, China, the United States, Britain, France and Germany.
He said Russia would try to deter both Iran and the West from making counterproductive moves and would seek a resumption of the talks, which are aimed at reining in Iran's nuclear program and easing concerns it could be seeking nuclear arms.
