Russia attacks Iran’s verbal assault on Medvedev

-

Reuters: Iranian criticism of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is “unacceptable” and “fruitless, irresponsible rhetoric”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Iranian criticism of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is “unacceptable” and “fruitless, irresponsible rhetoric”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

Medvedev told foreign ambassadors on July 12 that Iran was moving closer to the potential to create nuclear weapons.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reacted harshly last weekend, calling Medvedev’s statement “the announcement of a propaganda play, planned to be staged against us by America”. He said the Russian leader “has kick-started” this play.
