Russian President: Peres told me Israel won't attack Iran

President Shimon Peres told his Russian counterpart, Dmitry Medvedev, that Israel would not launch an attack on Iran, the Russian leader said in an interview with CNN released on Sunday.

Medvedev's comments came amid speculation that Israel was considering a military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities, which Israel believes the Islamic Republic is covertly using to develop atomic weapons.

The Russian president described such an attack as "the worst thing that can be imagined." He said Peres made the comment at a meeting in the Russian resort of Sochi in August.
