Russia blasts US, EU over Iran

Moscow, Sept 21 - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denounced as "counter-productive" moves by the United States and the European Union to report Iran's nuclear programme to the U.N. Security Council, Ria Novosti agency said.

"While Iran is cooperating with the IAEA, while it is not enriching uranium and observing a moratorium, while IAEA inspectors are working in the country it would be counter-productive to report this question to the U.N. Security Council," Lavrov was reported as saying in a speech in San Francisco.

"It will lead to an unnecessary politicising of the situation. Iran is not violating its obligations and its actions do not threaten the non-proliferation regime," he said in a speech at Standford University.
