Russia and China have long resisted the US campaign for sanctions and urged other powers to seek a diplomatic solution to the standoff over Iran's nuclear program. Both countries welcomed the nuclear declaration issued by Iran, Turkey and Brazil. "We attach importance to and support this agreement," Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said on Tuesday. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev also welcomed the declaration as "the politics of a diplomatic solution." Moscow has stressed that it would never support sanctions meant to "strangle Iran" or harm the Iranian people.
