NEW YORK, (Reuters) – European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Tuesday he did not expect Russia and China to break ranks with Western powers on whether to impose new sanctions on Iran if it continues to refuse to freeze its nuclear program.

Speaking to reporters in New York, Solana said he did not expect a meeting of six powers on Iran on Wednesday to produce any substantive decision. He said he and foreign ministers from the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany would discuss the group’s forthcoming meeting with Iran in Geneva on Oct. 1.
