Russia: UN sanctions preclude the use of force against Iran

The passage of the sanctions resolution against Iran precludes the option of using force against Iran, Russia said in the aftermath of the UN Security Council vote to impose a fourth round of sanctions on Iran for pursuing nuclear arms Wednesday, in a remark clearly aimed at Israeli and US ears.
In a interview on ABC's “The Morning Show” in April, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that if Israel were to strike Iran it would be a catastrophe, possibly developing into nuclear conflict.
