Russian Foreign Minister to Join Iran Nuclear Talks

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov threw his weight Friday behind nuclear talks with Iran, flying to Geneva to join senior negotiators struggling to seal a deal that would see Tehran start to roll back its atomic activities in exchange for sanctions relief.

As diplomats in Geneva struggled to find common language, Russia's Foreign Ministry said that Lavrov was on his way to the Swiss city to take part in the negotiations. The ministry said in a statement carried by Russian news agencies that Lavrov may also meet in Geneva with U.N.'s top Syrian envoy, Lakhdar Brahimi.
