Russia: Trump’s Decision to Withdraw from Iran Deal Shows US Unable to Negotiate
Local Editor

Moscow is "deeply disappointed" by Washington's decision to pull out from the Iranian nuclear deal, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

The step taken by the US is a "flagrant violation" of the international law, it added.

"The US once again acts contrary to the position of most countries while pursuing solely its own narrow selfish and momentary interests," the Russian ministry said in a statement, following the announcement by US President Donald Trump that his country is pulling out the deal and imposing sanctions on Iran. Washington "flagrantly violates the international law," the statement added while drawing attention to the fact that "there are no reasons for disrupting" the deal.

What the US' actions really show is that Washington is, in fact, incapable of conducting negotiations, the statement says. The latest move taken by Trump only proves that the grievances the US has had against the "absolutely legal Iranian nuclear activity" have always been just a "pretext for settling political scores" with Tehran, it added.

Russian lawmakers also slammed Trump's decision. "This is an egregious violation of the UN Security Council's resolution as well as a disruption of years-long diplomatic efforts in this field that creates a threat to international security," the head of the Russian State Duma's International Affairs Committee, Leonid Slutsky, told journalists, referring to the US withdrawal from the deal.
