VIENNA, June 13. /TASS/. Iran and the international sextet of negotiators (the five permanent UN Security Council member-states and Germany) agreed it would be impossible to automatically reintroduce sanctions against Iran, if Tehran breaches its nuclear obligations, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on Friday.
"The main task is to ensure the prerogatives of the UN Security Council should be guaranteed and there should exist no opportunity for the automatic prolongation of sanctions. That was agreed, settled and established," he said.
"Possibly, we still have no ideal solution, but it is hardly possible," Ryabkov said. "Now it is important to see to it in the remaining period there is no erosion, revision or something unexpected, such as the emergence of new ideas and wordings that might prevent us from implementing this," he believes. "In principle, everything is not bad in that sphere, although it is not ideal.".
