MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia rejects definitely U.S. practice of broadening anti-Iran sanction lists, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said here on Tuesday.
“Certainly, we reject definitely this approach,” he said in comments on plans of U.S. Congress to include several more officials and organisations in the sanction lists. “This is a direct path to undermining the groundwork for settling issues over Iranian nuclear program,” he noted.
“This does not suit us with which bravado some officials present expansion of these lists,” Ryabkov said.
He noted that Russia did not like the bravado with which some countries were reporting about the expansion of those lists.
“U.S. unilateral sanctions are illegitimate and do not have any legal foundation. These sanctions contradict the normal course of inter-state relations and are hindering progress at negotiations in the context of this particular situation,” the Russian diplomat said.
