Russia to Urge U.S. to Stay in Iran Nuclear Deal
MOSCOW (Dispatches) - Russia plans to convey a message to the United States asking Washington to stay in a 2015 multilateral deal with Iran.
Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Vasily Nebenzya said on Friday that Moscow would be delivering the message in a likely meeting of the parties to the deal next week.
Iran’s partners under the deal are Russia, China, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and the US. All the parties to the deal are determined to sustain it except Washington, which seems to be planning a unilateral withdrawal.
Meanwhile, the foreign ministers of Iran and the six other countries are likely to meet to discuss the deal on the sidelines of the 72th session of the UN General Assembly in New York next week.
