Bloomberg Top News -- Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said the U.S. and Europe should put aside differences with China and Russia over human rights and missile-defense issues to focus on working together to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Barak said criticism of Russia's actions in Chechnya and China's human rights record are hurting efforts to put up a united front against Iran. He also said that U.S. plans to deploy missiles in Eastern Europe -- which the Americans say are aimed at countering Iran and which Moscow perceives as a threat -- also aren't helpful.

``The other issues are not as urgent,'' he said.

Пожалуй, согласен со всем, кроме Ирана.
