MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. The US is not ready yet to organize a joint meeting between Iran and the P5 +1, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told TASS on sidelines of the Moscow non-proliferation conference on Saturday.

"To organize a joint conference it is essential to outline basic issues, but our American counterparts have not decided yet on what topic this joint commission should discuss," he said.

"Now is the time for the participants to analyze and consider the recent claims by the US president [Donald Trump] regarding the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), as the situation here has gone from bad to worse," he said, adding though the US had not announced withdrawing from JCPOA, Statements from the White House raise doubt over US commitments to the deal.

Last week, US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s new strategy against Tehran. Thus, it says that the United States will seek to offset Iran’s destabilizing influence and will call on the international community to get consolidated to exert pressure on Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard (IRGC, Iran's most powerful security and military organization). Apart from that, the US blacklisted the IRGC as an organization supporting terrorism.
