MOSCOW, January 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The world community will take a military attack on Iran and new sanctions as an attempt at power change in the country, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov told reporters on Friday.
“An obvious tendency has been reported recently for a deteriorating situation over Iran,” the Russian high-ranking diplomat said. “Unilateral sanctions imposed by Western countries under the UN Security Council decisions will have a negative impact on the population and economy in Iran. This policy undermines the efforts of the international community to settle the problem of the Iranian nuclear program,” Gatilov said.
“Our position is that with due account of the previous UN Security Council resolutions, which restrict military cooperation with Iran, the sanctions imposed on Iran by the UN Security Council are fully exhausted,” Gatilov said, “Everything that can be offered for the approval in the UN Security Council beyond the framework set in the resolutions, has no bearing with the task for a stronger nuclear non-proliferation regime,” he said.
“Additional sanctions against Iran, as well as a probable military attack on Iran, will be doubtlessly taken in the international community as those pursuing the goal of power change in Tehran,” the Russian deputy foreign minister underlined.
