MOSCOW, November 24, 15:44 /ITAR-TASS/. The agreement on Iran cuts the entire Middle Eastern knot of tension, first deputy head of the State Duma’s foreign relations committee Leonid Kalashnikov said on Sunday.
“It is a true breakthrough. The international community has followed a correct way of agreements instead of tougher sanctions regimes,” the deputy said. He expressed hope over the six months allocated by the Geneva agreement the parties would be able to approach fully unfreezing of the Iranian conflict. “Everything will depend on the process of verification, i.e. the process of control over how Iran will follow the obligations to eliminate the storage of enriched uranium.”
He added he was optimistic about the Iranian settlement.
“I am sure there will not be a war in Iran. There are no reasons left for it.”
The member of the parliament added over the process of the Iranian settlement “Russia has been playing a huge role by constraining attacks from supporters of the force solutions for the conflict and by not allowing those plans pass the United Nations‘ Security Council.
