MOSCOW (AP) - President Dmitry Medvedev says Russia and the U.S.
must work closely together to stop the spread of nuclear weapons in
volatile regions including the Middle East.

Medvedev said after talks Monday with President Barack Obama that the world is getting more dangerous as more countries develop nuclear weapons.

His remarks seemed a nod to U.S. concerns about Iran's nuclear program, but Medvedev did not specifically mention Iran.

He said the world is changing for the worse with "the appearance of new nuclear players, many of which aren't even signed up to the nuclear club, but which either dream of it openly or are secretly preparing for it."

The U.S. wants Russia to use its ties with Iran to press it to abandon nuclear activities that could lead to weapons development.
