Russian Foreign Ministry urges Iran not to test JCPOA
Russia calls on Tehran and other sides of the JCPOA to refrain from taking steps aimed at complicating the situation further, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.
"We call on all involved parties, including Iran, to refrain from steps aimed at complicating the situation further and to provide a possibility to find the solutions that will help stabilize the implementation of the JCPOA," he stressed.
"There is no need to test the agreements. The world will not become a safer place if the JCPOA ceases to exist, and the situation in the region where tankers had caught fire many times before, will deteriorate even further," TASS cited him as saying.
The diplomat called on the entire international community, first and foremost, the remaining members of the JCPOA to demonstrate political far-sightedness and will to achieve the goals that these comprehensive agreements had been signed with. "Without the INF, the situation in the world will definitely become more dangerous," Ryabkov concluded.
