Russian envoy: US overestimated effect of maximum pressure on Iran

London, IRNA – Permanent Representative of Russia to the International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov on Thursday said that “the course of the Vienna Talks proved once again that the US overestimated the effects of its maximum pressure policy on Iran.

“The course of the #ViennaTalks proves once again that US overestimated the influence of maximum pressure on #Iran,” Ulyanov wrote on his Twitter account.

He added that “pressure continues but Iran isn’t in the rush although it knows that the sooner the talks are completed the sooner sanctions are lifted.”

“Sanctions are not the only factor that is taken into account,” he noted.

On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the international deal between Iran and the six world powers.

Then, he re-imposed illegal sanctions against Iran in November 2018, the sanctions which as he said were at the highest level.

Reciprocally, Iran started reducing commitments to the JCPOA from the first anniversary of the US withdrawal.

Tehran's decision to reduce its commitments to the JCPOA was taken based on Articles 26 and 36.
