Netanyahu said last Sunday that the world was moving closer to Israel's position when it came to Iran. Someone lying to their people me thinks. I would suggest that Russia is now more likely to move towards China's position knowing that they will not be singled out as the ones who blocked sanctions. Notwithstanding the fact Iran has expressed an interest in a further 5 Russian nuclear reactors. That is a lot of money, that is.
