Putin Denounces `Madman' With Knife Approach to Iran
By Sebastian Alison

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced what he called the ``madman waving a knife'' approach to diplomatic negotiations aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear program.

The U.S. today ratcheted up sanctions against Iran, saying the Iranian military's Revolutionary Guard Corps is involved in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and its Quds force supports terrorism. The Bush administration has refused to rule out military action against Iran.

``To run around like a madman waving a knife is not the best way forward,'' Putin said in response to a reporter's question at a Lisbon press conference today, following talks with Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva. ``Why drive the situation into a dead end?''

The U.S. contends that Iran's uranium enrichment program is aimed at developing a nuclear weapon. Iran, the second-largest oil producer in the Middle East, denies that, saying it only wants to generate electrical power. The new U.S. sanctions freeze any U.S. assets of the Iranian military and prohibits Americans from doing business with it, putting pressure on foreign companies to cut economic ties with Iran.
