Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has expressed fears over the threat of war in Iran after talks with his French counterpart, Bernard Kouchner.
Iran's nuclear programme is topping the agenda of their meeting in Moscow.
On Sunday, Mr Kouchner raised tensions with Iran, saying: "We have to prepare for the worst, and the worst is war."
"We are worried by reports that there is serious consideration being given to military action in Iran," Mr Lavrov said.
"That is a threat to a region where there are already grave problems in Iraq and Afghanistan."
Clarifying comments he made on Sunday, Mr Kouchner said in Moscow that war was the "worst that could happen".
"Everything should be done to avoid war. We have to negotiate, negotiate, negotiate - without cease, without rebuff," he said.
Is it just me? Or does it seem like Russia knows something is afoot and is trying to keep the crap from hitting the fan?
