Lavrov: Attack on Iran a Serious Mistake


Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, Monday, that a military attack on Iran's nuclear installations "would be a very serious mistake fraught with unpredictable consequences." Lavrov added, "Military intervention only leads to a multiple rise in casualties and human suffering. There can be no military solution to the Iranian nuclear problem, just like there can be none for any other problem in the modern world."

Lavrov was responding, at a Moscow news conference, to remarks by President Shimon Peres that the need for such a strike was increasing, Lavrov said an Israeli attack was "not impossible".
