Iran's enemies to decide course soon: Russian general

Russia's top general said on Tuesday that he expects Iran's enemies to decide in the next few months how to deal with a nuclear programme that the United States and Israel have said they might attack.

In remarks that come as Russia has been voicing its differences with the West on various issues in the Middle East, General Nikolai Makarov, the chief-of-staff, was quoted by RIA news agency as saying: "Iran, of course, is a sore spot."

"There has to be some kind of decision about it now. It will be made, probably, closer to summer," he said.
