MOSCOW, June 17 (Itar-Tass) —— U.S. unilateral anti-Iranian sanctions disagreeing with international laws and affecting third countries will strike on U.S.-Russia relations and prospect of the bilateral interaction in international affairs, Presidential Aide Yuri Ushakov said on Sunday.
He said the issue would be discussed at the Los Cabos negotiations of Presidents Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama on June 18, on the G20 summit sidelines.
“We insist that U.S. unilateral anti-Iranian sanctions disagreeing with international laws and affecting third countries are impermissible. If the sanctions apply to Russian companies and banks, they will strike on bilateral relations and prospect of the bilateral interaction in international affairs,” Ushakov said.
“As for the Iranian nuclear program, we share the wish to prevent proliferation of weapons of mass destruction on condition of the acknowledgement of the Iranian right to develop atomic energy. We think it is important to give real positive stimuli to Iran in order to stop uranium enrichment and exports,” he said.
