PARIS, April 14. /TASS/. The Sextet of international mediators seek to conclude a lasting and verifiable agreement with Iran on its nuclear program, French Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Romain Nadal said on Tuesday, commenting on Russia’s decision to lift arms embargo on Iran and supply S-300 air defense missiles to Tehran.
The Sextet will lift sanctions from Iran only after a final agreement is reached, Nadal noted. He added that talks between the international mediators and Iran will resume soon.
Earlier today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel urged countries which imposed sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program to keep a unified approach to lifting them.
Merkel praised the preliminary agreement reached on April 2 between Tehran and Sextet in Lausanne, calling it a very important step. "I urge people to lift those sanctions together, as far as possible," the chancellor said.
From 2006, the UN Security Council has adopted eight resolutions on Iran’s nuclear program. The resolutions imposed arms and nuclear technologies embargo on Tehran, prohibited activities connected to developing ballistic missiles, and targeted individuals and organizations by freezing assets and restricting travel. Iran has repeatedly demanded the cancellation of these and other sanctions imposed unilaterally by the US and other countries.
On April 2, Iran and P5+1 group (Russia, US, UK, China, France and Germany) reached a breakthrough agreement in Switzerland’s Lausanne on restricting Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for gradual lifting of sanctions. The deadline for coordinating the final agreement is June 30.
