Russia stresses need for persistent efforts for lifting anti-Iran sanctions

Moscow, April 16, IRNA – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov on Thursday recalled his country's efforts to remove unilateral sanctions against Iran and formation of anti-sanctions campaign, saying that Moscow will continue its measures in this respect.

In a telephone conversation with Iran's Ambassador to Russia Kazem Jalali, he added that Moscow has always supported enhancement of cooperation in the framework of multilateral formats and considers formation of new formats including 'Brix Plus' possible.

Jalali, for his part, appreciated Russia's aid to Iran in the face of coronavirus, describing President Vladimir Putin's initiative in setting up green corridor as effective when unilateral sanctions are imposed.

Stressing the need for continuing efforts to lift sanction within the formats of G20 and BRICS, he said continuation of collaboration against unilateral moves which are taking place to undermine JCPOA is significant.

During the phone talk, both sides also discussed bilateral, regional and international issues.
