Basically Secretary Clinton was trying to gauge Moscow's willingness to back specific measures that could be imposed on Iran if it fails to comply with international demands to come clean on its atomic activities. Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov said sanctions now would be counterproductive. Lavrov said every effort should be made to deal with Iran using diplomatic means.
At the same time that we are very vigorously pursuing this track, we are aware that we might not be as successful as we need to be, so we have always looked at the potential of sanctions in the event we are not successful and cannot assure ourselves and others that Iran has decided not to pursue nuclear weapons.
Also on the agenda were the FP essentials: Afghanistan, nuclear-armed North Korea, NATO expansion, the situation in Georgia after its conflict with Russia last year, human rights and arms control.
Secretary Clinton also hosted a reception for Civil Society Leaders while in Moscow and had a meeting with Dimitriy Medvedev, the President of the Russian Federation.
