Russian Foreign Ministry comments on U.S. decision on Iranian oil sanctions
The Russian Foreign Ministry’s information and press department commented on the refusal of the U.S. to extend the waivers to eight countries importing Iranian oil.
The ministry said in the commentary that the "U.S. has obviously made a mistake in choosing tools, if it has decided to make Tehran an easy negotiator ready for any deals on American terms through suppressing it economically, dealing a blow to living conditions of ordinary Iranians."
The ministry noted that this policy won’t add international weight to Americans. "The rest of the world sees perfectly well that Washington's policy is getting increasingly aggressive and reckless," the statement reads.
