Russia-U.S. relations are at a post-Cold War low just about everywhere, except at the Iran nuclear talks.The Russians also don't want a U.S.-Iran war. Gary Samore, a U.S. negotiator at the nuclear talks until 2013, says getting an agreement is in Moscow's strategic interest as it tries to limit the U.S. presence in the Middle East.To that end, the Iran talks are also serving as a conduit between Russia and America on various ways of reducing Mideast turmoil.A nuclear deal may serve Russia's own needs on a strategic level, and work against the United States.The U.S. has tried desperately to prevent that system from reaching Iran. The Iranians are clearly banking on Russia as they ready to shake off crippling economic sanctions.
