    The situation surrounding Iran's controversial nuclear program is likely to come to a head by the summer, Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Nikolai Makarov said.

    Washington, which suspects Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb, says that no options have been taken off the table.

    “Iran, of cause, is a sore spot. Some kind of decision should be taken, probably nearer to summer,” Makarov said.

    Russia's Defense Ministry is monitoring the situation in Iran and the entire Middle East from a recently created situation center, he said.

    “We used to have a general on duty at each main command. Now we have created a situation center that receives all the necessary information in real time,” Makarov said.
