Russia must do more to show it is committed to "the basics of democracy" if it wants deeper relations with the West, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday. But Rice, who met with her Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei V.

Iran called Tuesday for the resumption of talks on its nuclear activities, but Western powers were scornful of the offer, and Russia said Tehran would have to halt atomic fuel research if it wanted negotiations. "Talk is cheap," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. A senior British official labeled as "vacuous" the Iranian offer, contained in a letter from Javad Vaeidi, deputy head of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, to restart talks.

Governments around the world expressed shock and scorn Thursday at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's call for Israel to be "wiped off the map," and several summoned Tehran's envoys in their capitals for a reprimand. Israel called for Iran to be expelled from the United Nations over Ahmadinejad's remarks, but other nations did not immediately back that view. In a speech Wednesday, Ahmadinejad denounced Israel and predicted a new wave of Palestinian attacks that would destroy it.
