MOSCOW, January 18. /TASS/. The West’s influence on the Russian-Iranian relations will weaken now that sanctions are lifted off Iran, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanai wrote on his LiveJournal blog on Monday.
"Over the years of sanctions [against Iran], the Russian-Iranian relations were impacted by a third factor, namely by the West. In the new conditions, the influence of the third factor on relations between the two countries will be lessened," he wrote. "In the new conditions, Russian companies should secure full-fledged participation on the Iranian investment and industrial markets and earn privileges through participation in financing and technology transfer on this highly competitive market."
On Saturday, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) published a report confirming Iran’s complete fulfilment of its liabilities under the nuclear deal with the six world powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Following IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano’s report, European foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif announced the so-called "Implementation Day" and lifting of all anti-Iranian sanctions.
