Yesterday, the Washington put to Tehran a number of requirements for failure which threatened new sanctions. In Moscow said that these measures will not affect the relations between Iran and Russia.
States have already shut down oil imports from Iran, while Turkey and Russia were urged not to do it. Moreover, the United States is dissatisfied with the expansion and increased capacity of nuclear power plant in Bushehr. America is waiting for the report from Iran and hopes that Tehran will open its military nuclear program.
Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that such behavior of the USA will not become an obstacle to cooperation between Iran and Russia. According to Ryabkov, the threat of new sanctions – another blackmail from the States. The diplomat stressed that Russia has learned to resist sanctions since 2012, and Iran in this matter is also not new.
Apparently, Washington could threaten as much as necessary. But if Russia continues to be in a partnership with Iran – it is likely that sanctions will not cause damage.
