For Lavrov, Ways to Elude US Sanctions on Iran Will Be Found

Tuesday 6 November 2018

MADRID (TASS) — Ways to foster economic ties with Iran will be found despite US sanctions, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Tuesday. Russia’s top diplomat said the experts have “quite stable understanding that this is possible and that such measures will be found”.

Lavrov said:

Mechanisms are being currently hammered out within the framework of the joint group of participants in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [for the Iranian nuclear program], which will make it possible to continue performing provisions of this document, primarily with respect to economic ties with Iran, and without US participation.

[…]

Experts are vigorously dealing with this matter and they have quite a stable understanding that this is possible and that such measures will be found.

Meantime, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called the US’ anti-Iran sanctions wrong on Tuesday. “We will not obey such sanctions. I don’t consider the decision to introduce sanctions to be right. This move is aimed at violating the global balance”, the NTV channel quoted him as saying. To date, the Turkish leader stated, his country purchases 10 bln m³ of gas per year from Iran.
