Her Majesty’s Government have said no in reply to the request from the US to use British military bases for deploying anti-Iranian forces on them, the Guardian has reported today citing an unnamed source in the British government.

According to the source, the rebuff was based on a secret report drafted by the Attorney General's Office (UK) claiming that any pre-emptive strike on Iran would be in breach of international law, as Iran does not currently represent “a clear and present threat”.

“The UK would be in breach of international law if it facilitated what amounted to a pre-emptive strike on Iran,” said the source. “It is explicit. The government has been using this to push back against the Americans.”

The US diplomats have reportedly asked for the use of British bases in Cyprus, and for permission to fly from US bases on Ascension Island in the Atlantic and Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean, both of which are British territories.

Switzerland opposes unilateral Iran sanctions

Switzerland is against imposing unilateral sanctions on Iran, Swiss Foreign Minister Didier Burkhalter has told Russia’s Sergei Lavrov Thursday.

He stressed Bern would never back unilateral sanctions put forth by any alliance other than the United Nations. “As a rule, we don’t support such sanctions,” he vouched.

He also said Bern was ready to take part in negotiations with Iran as the representative of US interests in this country.

U.S. ready to discuss possibility of direct talks with Iran

The US is ready to discuss possibility of holding direct talks with Iran, but currently there are no agreements to this effect. This was announced by White House press secretary Jay Carney, in yet another disclaimer of information published by the newspaper The New York Times.

On Monday, during the presidential debate, US President Barack Obama also emphasized that the information appearing in the publication did not correspond to the truth.

On Sunday, the newspaper published an article according to which a bilateral meeting could be "the final diplomatic attempt to avert a military strike on Iran.
