MOSCOW, November 14 (Itar-Tass) — Russia believes that sanctions against Iran are exhausted, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
“Everything was done within the U.N. Security Council over Iran’s nuclear programme. That is the goal of the sanction pressure. The remaining is being done unilaterally by America, Europe, Japan and Britain,” Lavrov told journalists on Monday on the way to Honolulu.
“Moreover, Americans unilaterally use sanctions in the extra-territorial context by punishing companies of third countries, which carry out the U.N. Security Council resolutions, but they do not correspond to the Americans’ tougher sanctions,” the minister explained.
In his opinion, passions over the Iranian nuclear programme heighten in order to impose new sanctions.
“Despite the fact nothing was found in compliance with the latest military research of Tehran, the IAEA Director-General decides to qualify the well-know data proving that Iran has its nuclear programme. You see the noise to reign in Israel, in Europe and in the United States on this aspect that contains nothing new,” Lavrov
“So, I admit this campaign may be directed. These may be means to heighten passions in the public opinion and to pave the way towards imposing new unilateral sanctions,” the minister added.
“Any sanctions yield no result. As for Iran, it is necessary to involve it in the talk that the Sextet proposed. Sanctions or air strikes only put off negotiations,” Lavrov stressed.
