MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. The refusal of the US President Donald Trump to confirm Iran observes the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on its nuclear program is irresponsible, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the Moscow non-proliferation conference on Saturday.
"We watched with great regret the positive dynamics of the agreement’s fulfilment has not secured the US President Donald Trump from failing to confirm to the Congress Iran was observing its part of the deal," he said. "In our opinion, it is an irresponsible decision not only regarding the plan itself, but regarding the entire international community.".
"What happens now is the US once again make issues of the global security and stability depend on certain political processes, and realistically allow these issues to be considered by politicians, who in fact are far from the agreements’ contents," he continued. "As yet, we consider the actions by the US president as a reflection of a certain inner political position of political forces in the USA."
"However, we hope emotions and political situations do not prevail, and above all would be our common aspirations for improvement of the non-proliferation regime, for conditions for regular trade and economic cooperation between countries, for support of the international and regional peace and security," the deputy foreign minister said.
Last week, US President Donald Trump announced Washington’s new strategy against Teheran. 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.
