MOSCOW, November 22 (Itar-Tass) — Russia condemns the United States’ decision to toughen unilateral sanctions against Iran as “inadmissible and running counter to international law,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
America’s “extraterritorial measure” infringe upon the interests of companies from third countries, which cooperate with Iran in the oil and oil refining sectors, and on Iran’s banking sector, the diplomat said.
“As is seen from the development of the situation around Iran’s nuclear program, such practices seriously deteriorates a constructive dialogue with Tehran,” Lukashevich stressed. Tougher sanctions, some of our partners seem to consider as an end in itself, are unlikely to motivate Iran to sit down at the negotiating table.”
“We believe augmenting sanctions have long gone beyond the non-proliferation tasks in the context of the Iranian nuclear program,” the Russian diplomat emphasized.
