MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. Sanctions imposed on Iran by a UN Security Council's resolution must be cancelled together with the signing of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Friday.
"We confirm our position that the sanctions secured in a UN Security Council's resolution should be lifted simultaneously with the agreement’s signing. But this does not mean that the whole range of sanctions will be cancelled ," Ryabkov said.
Iran and six powers (Russia, US, UK, China, France and Germany) reached a breakthrough agreement in Switzerland’s Lausanne last week on restricting Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for gradual lifting of sanctions. The deadline for coordinating the final agreement is June 30.
According to the deal, Iran will not enrich uranium no higher than to 3.67% for the next 15 years. Tehran will also cut its stockpile of low-enriched uranium from around 10 tons to 300 kilograms. Iran agreed not to set up new facilities for uranium enrichment in the next 15 years, and vowed not to reprocess spent nuclear fuel and conduct research in this sphere.
Ryabkov said the sides managed to agree on key points during the talks in Lausanne. He added that hard work was to be done on the final agreement. "We should now concentrate on writing the [final] text," he said.
