Lavrov on Iran Sanctions

Russia remains opposed to any unilateral sanctions against Iran despite banning the delivery of S-300 air defense missile systems to Tehran earlier this week, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday.

“They [unilateral sanctions] are a violation, even without mentioning the legal aspect of the issue,” Lavrov said, Interfax reported.

President Dmitry Medvedev issued a decree on Sept. 22 prohibiting the delivery of the S-300 systems and other weapons to Iran, a move criticized by Tehran.

Meanwhile, a complex computer worm capable of seizing control of industrial plants has affected the personal computers of staff working at Iran’s first nuclear power station in Bushehr weeks before the facility is to go online, Iranian news agency IRNA reported Sunday.
