Russia's Foreign Minister has warned about possible consequences of a US military strike against Iraq. He said the coalition against terror could break apart if the US quit supporting the U.N.'s attempts to peacefully pressure Iraq.
Russian politicians said it was inappropriate to call countries that have nothing to do with the al Qaida an axis of evil and they also think that the US should not disregard international legal principles in their anti-terror campaign.
Russia also warned that a war in Iraq would be a major ground operation with a lot of deaths.
Moscow is still ready to fight terrorism though - but only if they have evidence before they start interventions.
