MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Moscow is trying to persuade Western partners to meet Tehran halfway more actively after the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Russian Ambassador to Iran Levan Jagaryan told TASS on Thursday.
"We persuade our Western partners to meet Iran halfway more actively, because Tehran has a lot of complaints in regard to Western partners," he said. "Iranians say all the time, "We are doing our part of the job, are you are not working hard enough."
"I want to say that we tried to cooperate with Iran in the period when sanctions were imposed on it, because we did not recognize the unilateral sanctions," the ambassador said. "Now, of course, new opportunities have emerged."
The diplomat added that the development of the Russian-Iranian trade and economic ties is a priority for Moscow. "The level of our trade and economic cooperation does not correspond to its potential," he said.
According to Jagaryan, experts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "on the whole, have a favorable view of the way the agreement is implemented by Iran." "I think the Iranians will not give them a pretext for complaints," the ambassador added.
