Russian Senator: EU should stand against US pressures on Iran

Moscow, June 4, IRNA - A Russian Senator said that the European Union should stand against the US pressures on Iran.

Senator Igor Morozov, member of the Council of the Federation Committee for Foreign Affairs, believes that today the European Union and, above all, Germany, France and Britain, including the members of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA), have faced an important test and are duty-bound to base on their commitments to endure against "the US pressures against Iran" after the unilateral withdrawal of the United States.

In an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) in Moscow, the Russian politician added that today the situation in the Persian Gulf is very complicated, and the in the US government there is a common view that the military presence of the United States over Iran should be strengthened.

"This action was first realized with the deployment of deployment of aircraft carriers for airborne forces, and the complicated conditions have make the European Union face a difficult test in their relations with Iran.", Morozov  said.

According to him, Iran’s staying in the JCPOA despite the unilateral withdrawal of this agreement has made the situation more difficult for European parties (France, Britain and Germany), because they have to comply with their commitments to Iran in accordance with their commitments. After the departure of the United States, Europeans also declared that they adhere to their commitments, so they should stand up to America and defend Iran.

"The world is witnessing the latest case of confidence in the United States and NATO," said the Russian Senator, expressing concern over the expansion of the US military presence in the Persian Gulf and the possibility of NATO entry into the conflict.

“Of course, I think that today Iran is ready to defend its territorial integrity and its sovereignty because all the necessary facilities, as well as the support of the international community within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and other formats that China and Russia are participating in, is also available for the country.”
