The US believes this is not the time to impose more sanctions against Iran as part of its push to get the country to end its nuclear programme.

Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, emphasised co-operation with Moscow on the atomic issue in statements on Tuesday after talks with Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister.

Both countries would continue to pursue a diplomatic resolution with Iran, she said as she praised Russia’s help in tackling the issue.

Clinton agreed with a recent statement by Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, that sanctions against Tehran may be inevitable if no progress was made, but said “we are not at that point yet”.

“That is not a conclusion we have reached. And we want to be very clear that it is our preference that Iran works with the international community … to fulfil its obligation on inspections,” she said.

Nazanine Moshiri, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Tehran, said it was “extremely important” for Iranians not to have the immediate worry of sanctions.

“They don’t want a forfeit round of sanctions right now. That’s why they’re keen to keen continue this diplomatic track and keen to talk to the Americans at Vienna on October 19th,” she said.

“And also to open up [the nuclear site of] Qom to inspections. It’s a very clever move by the Iranians to continue this track.”

How is it that all these multi-culturalists haven’t done their homework on Islamic culture?   They continue to deal with the Iranians as if they are a competing business negotiating for water rights, or delivery dates, or service plans.

What we are negotiating with them about is the date be which they will be able to destroy first our allies, and then us.
