Lavrov Meets Zarif: We Have Planned Contacts Except for the US
Local Editor

Russian acting Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif to discuss the Iranian nuclear deal after Washington's withdrawal from the multilateral agreement.

Lavrov said at meeting with Iranian foreign minister that it is necessary to prevent any new threats to non-proliferation regime.

Russia and a number of other countries have legitimate interests in the Iranian nuclear deal and they must be jointly defended, Lavrov said.

"We have planned contacts with all parties to this deal, except for the United States which announced the withdrawal from the agreement, in the coming days," Lavrov said.

For his part, Zarif noted that balance within JCPOA was altered following the US withdrawal from the multilateral agreement. He added that Iran will discuss ways of cooperation in 4+1 format within JCPOA.

"Russia's position is encouraging for us. I hope that today I will be able to hold consultations with you on the ways of cooperation in the 4 + 1 format," Zarif said at a meeting with Lavrov.

"Unfortunately, the protest against international rules and laws has become a habitual practice for the US government... The JCPOA corresponds to the balance of commitments between the Iranian side and Europe and, in particular, the United States, and of course this balance has been undermined after the US withdrawal," Zarif said.

The current tensions around the Iranian nuclear deal followed announcement of the US President Donald Trump that the United States would pull out of the deal. Together with withdrawal, Trump announced Washington's plans to renew its sanctions against Tehran.

The Iranian nuclear deal was reached in 2015 between Iran, the P5+1 group, inducing the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council [China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States], plus Germany, and the European Union.
