Spain PM: Putin must play decisive role on Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin must play a decisive role in finding an answer to the international community's standoff with Iran over that country's nuclear program, Spain's prime minister said Thursday in a joint press conference with the visiting Russian leader. Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero also called on Putin to lend his weight to efforts to bring about Middle East peace, and appealed for an end to the violence that has swept the Muslim world over European newspapers' decision to publish caricatures depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
