MOSCOW (Agencies) - Russia will not support crippling sanctions against Iran, including any that may be slapped on the Islamic Republics banking or energy sectors, a senior Russian diplomat said on Wednesday. During a visit to Moscow this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for an immediate embargo on Irans energy sector. Call them what you want - crippling or paralysing - we are not got going to work on sanctions or measures which could lead to the political or economic or financial isolation of this country, Oleg Rozhkov, Deputy Director of the Security Affairs and Disarmament Department at Russias Foreign Ministry, told reporters in Moscow. When asked by a reporter what sanctions Russia might be able to support, he said: Those that are directed at resolving non-proliferation questions linked to Irans nuclear programme. What relation to non-proliferation is there in forbidding banking activities with Iran? This is a financial blockade. And oil and gas. These sanctions are aimed only at paralysing the country and paralysing the regime, he said. We do not consider the sanctions path the right one - it pushes the situation further and further into a dead end, a dead end which can only be resolved by force and we do not support that at all, Rozhkov said of Iran sanctions. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia will supply the S-300 Patriot class air defence missiles to Iran after some 'technical issues are sorted out in the deal that is objected to by the US and Israel. He said the contract to sell the defence missiles to Iran was in place but some issues needed to be resolved. There is a contract and there are few things which need to be sorted out before fulfilling it, Lavrov said. He said Moscow is guided by principles laid down in its domestic laws and international obligations of not taking any steps which could jeopardise the stability in the region. All our arms deliveries are consonant with this principle and we expect other nations also to be guided by it, who not only supply defensive but also other weapons, which had killed our peacekeepers, Lavrov said in an obvious reference to the US and Israeli weapons used by Georgia in August 2008 to regain control over breakaway South Ossetia under protection of the CIS peacekeeping force. Meanwhile, Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama put pressure on Iran Wednesday to abandon its suspected nuclear weapons programme, a report said. Iran should allay international fears it may be seeking an atomic weapon by complying with UN Security Council resolutions and cooperating with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Hatoyama told visiting Iranian parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani, according to Jiji news agency. In the meeting with Hatoyama, Larijani defended the energy programme and denied it was trying to obtain weapons of mass destruction, the report said. According to a report Wednesday, Japan has offered to enrich uranium for Iran to allow the Islamic republic access to nuclear power while allaying international fears it might be seeking an atomic weapon,.
