Iranian president calls defending nuclear deal top priorityWorld August 21, 8:20
GORKI, April 3. /TASS/. Agreements on Iran’s nuclear program as well as steps to lift international sanctions offer new prospects for economic projects between Moscow and Tehran, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said on Friday.
"The removal of any sanctions opens up additional opportunities," Dvorkovich told journalists. "We have never stopped working with Iran. Neither have other countries, including Europe, stopped cooperating with Iran. They simply did it more carefully."
"There are opportunities and there are contacts," he said, noting Russian companies’ interest in joint projects with Iran.
"I think our companies will propose projects that can be implemented in the near future," Dvorkovich added.
After eight days of talks in Switzerland, Iran and six world powers — the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany — on Thursday night reached a framework agreement on curbing Iran’s nuclear program.
The framework clears the way for talks on a comprehensive deal with Iran by June 30 under which it would curb nuclear activities for at least a decade in exchange for an end to sanctions imposed by the United Nations, European Union and United States on Iran’s energy and financial sectors.
