Lavrov: Russia hopes US to fulfil its intentions of returning to Iran nuclear deal
Moscow hopes that the United States will implement its earlier voiced intentions to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) under the Iran nuclear program, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Chinese mass media.
According to Lavrov, after having announced its withdrawal from the deal, Washington not only stopped with the implementation of its obligations, but also prohibited the rest of involved countries with the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution.
"The West took that decision as ‘what can we do because it was the U.S. decision; this is the reality, although it would have been good if they continued with the implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal resolution’," TASS cited the Russian foreign minister as saying.
"However, this is not the reality, but a blatant violation of international rights, and a demonstration of the government’s complete inability of reaching agreements," Lavrov said. "I hope that today the U.S. administration, which expressed intentions to return to the nuclear deal, will fulfill its voiced intentions."
