Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said Friday that his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's visit to Iran is "last opportunity" to resolve Iranian nuclear problem in a diplomatic way, news agencies reported.

"I do hope that the Brazilian president's mission will be a success. Perhaps it is the last chance before the UN Security Council makes the already known decisions," said Medvedev at a press conference after holding talks with Lula.

Medvedev also said the six countries have coordinated their position on Iranian nuclear problem.

"As for approaches inside of the sextet, I believe that they are consolidated to a sufficient extent," said the Russian leader as quoted by the Interfax news agency.

The six countries refer to the group of international mediators consists of Russia, China, the U.S., Britain, France and Germany.
