Moscow calls on all states to continue buying Iranian oil despite the US announcement to end sanctions waivers for importers of Iranian oil.
We urge everyone to not turn off such economic ties, including purchase of Iranian products, primarily energy resources.
The Kremlin insist that Washington must stop any actions that impede the interaction of other states with Iran in the financial, economic, political and other spheres.
Iran informed the ambassadors of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia of its decision to suspend some of its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear agreement.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said he gave European countries 60 days to hold negotiations with Iran.
We urge all the state parties to the nuclear deal to comply with their obligations under the Action Plan; speed up the implementation of projects coordinated in accordance with comprehensive agreements, in particular the modernization of the reactor in Arak.
The administration of US President Donald Trump has long sought to squeeze Iranian oil exports out of the oil market.
Last year, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the multilateral Iran nuclear deal, which ensures the removal of the western anti-Tehran sanctions in exchange for Iran abandoning its civil nuclear program.
