      Israel has received no guarantees from Russia or China that they will
      support sanctions against Iran, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
      Netanyahu said on Tuesday, as quoted by national media.

      However, he said that he hoped that even if their support was not
      forthcoming the two permanent members of the UN Security Council would
      not exercise their rights to a veto on sanctions against the Islamic
      Republic over its nuclear program.

      Netanyahu said on his recent visits to Russia and China that the Iranian
      nuclear project was the main threat to Israeli security.

      Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on March 1 he did not rule out
      that Moscow would back sanctions against Iran, but added that if were
      used, they should be a "balanced" last resort.

      Iran's recent move to begin enriching uranium to 20% sparked a new wave
      of international criticism, with the U.S. leading calls for new harsher
      sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

      Western powers suspect that Iran's nuclear program is aimed at making
      weapons, while Tehran claims it needs enriched uranium for civilian
      energy purposes.
