Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the US position complicates the settlement of Iran's nuclear problem.

Speaking at the jubilee session of the Council on Foreign and Defence Policy on Saturday, Lavrov said, "The considerable part of the problem like as Korea's one is linked to the US unwillingness to normalize relations with Tehran on the basis of the generally recognised principles."

Elsewhere in his remarks, Lavrov said the West is losing its monopoly on globalisation.

"The West "is losing its monopoly on globalisation processes".

"New forces emerge and this gives a signal on how to cope with the problem of controllability in the world. The use of force and unilateral reaction lead to intensifying conflicts in world politics," the minister said.

Lavrov said Russia is ready to help solve the problems, which were unilaterally begun, including the situation in Iraq.

He said Russia has no confrontational uncertainty towards the United States.

He added that the deployment of the US NMD in Europe would have an impact on Russia-NATO relations.

He went on to say, "We will take return measures and join our efforts to search for collective alternatives."
"The deployment of the NMD system in Europe will affect Russia-NATO relations," the minister stressed.
