Russia Slams Unilateral Iran Sanctions

Russia has slammed unilateral sanctions imposed by the US and the European Union against Iran, warning them against risking Russian business interests.

“We do not support them. We think they are totally wrong in substance and in tactics,” Russian ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, told reporters in Brussels on Friday.

“We will certainly not accept any infringement of the rights and of the activities of Russian companies on the basis of those unilateral decisions,” he said.

The remarks came in response to a move by the US and the European bloc to impose sanctions on Iran’s oil and gas sectors — measures beyond the fourth round of UN Security Council sanctions approved in May.

The Russian diplomat, whose country along with other veto-wielding members of Security Council approved the US-brokered sanctions, criticized the follow-on measures by the European Union as “not clever.”
