ImageMOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia is against the United Nations taking any extra measures on Iran over its nuclear program for now, and thinks efforts towards dialogue should continue, the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.

The comments came after talks between majors powers over a fourth round of U.N. sanctions against Iran ended with no firm commitment on Friday.

Western countries fear Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons, which Tehran denies.

"On the Russian side, we underlined the necessity of continuing efforts to include Tehran in a constructive dialogue aimed at launching a process of talks," the ministry said.

"In this context we spoke against the development of extra measures by the U.N. Security Council at this stage."

The United States, Britain, France and Germany are pushing for harsher measures over Tehran's defiance of U.N. demands for full disclosure and a halt to uranium enrichment, which can have both civilian and military purposes.

Russia and China however have been resisting such moves.
