Netanyahu @ Cabinet: Russians toughened stance on Iran nukes; Europeans position regarding Iran unyielding

(Ynet).While Iran and the six world powers were conducting negotiations in Geneva on Tehran's nuclear program, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told cabinet that Russia was more open to possible sanctions against Iran, but added, "As for the Chinese, they are apparently not on board."

"The diplomatic situation vis-à-vis Iran has improved, but (Iran) is continuing with its nuclear program," said the PM.

From talks he had held during the recent UN General Assembly's annual session in New York, Netanyahu concluded that the Europeans' position regarding Iran was "unyielding," adding that the US also showed "more resolve."
