A mis­take to leave the deal: Rus­sia

The Asian Age - - World -

Moscow, Jan. 13: Rus­sia on Satur­day said Wash­ing­ton would be mak­ing a grave mis­take by pulling out of the Iran nu­clear deal, adding that Moscow would work hard to keep the land­mark agree­ment alive.

Deputy for­eign min­is­ter Sergei Ryabkov crit­i­cised re­marks by US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, who on Fri­day said the US will not reim­pose nu­clear sanc­tions on Iran for the mo­ment, but would with­draw later this year un­less the terms of the deal are changed.

“We are grad­u­ally com­ing to the con­clu­sion that an in­ter­nal de­ci­sion by the US to leave the ( Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion) has al­ready been made or is close to be­ing made,” Mr Ryabkov said in an in­ter­view with In­ter­fax news agency.

“This could be one of Wash­ing­ton’s big for­eign pol­icy mis­takes, a big mis­cal­cu­la­tion in Amer­i­can pol­icy,” he said.
