Russia Slams US Move to Re-Impose Unilateral Sanctions against Iran

Russia Slams US Move to Re-Impose Unilateral Sanctions against Iran

-Russia slammed the United States for re-imposing its unilateral sanctions against Iran after exiting the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal

Alwaght- Russia slammed the US for re-imposing its unilateral sanctions against Iran after exiting the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal, describing it as a "destructive step" that could destabilize the already-volatile West Asia (Middle East) region.

Addressing a news briefing on Thursday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said "Washington’s course at bringing down the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program and restoring full-scale pressure through sanctions is absolutely destructive," referring to the Iran deal by its official name.

After abandoning the JCPOA in May, the administration of US President Donald Trump on Tuesday reinstated a series of unilateral sanctions targeting Iran's purchase of US dollars, trade in gold and other precious metals as well as its automotive sector. A second batch of US sanctions will be re-imposed on Iran in November with the aim of undermining its oil exports and shipping sectors.

The US president has also threatened punitive measures against the firms that refuse to stop their business links with Iran when the American sanctions return.

Washington's move drew criticisms from Russia, China and the European parties to the Iran deal -- France, Britain and Germany.

The EU was quick to issue a statement in defense of the landmark accord, vowing to fight the American sanctions and protect the firms working with Iran.

The 28-nation bloc has activated a "blocking statute" aimed to mitigate the impact of American restrictive measures on European firms legally active in the Iranian market. It has also warned that the firms that choose to abide by Washington's bans may be slapped with European sanctions.

Zakharova further said the Trump administration's measures would entail "long-term deplorable consequences for global nonproliferation [of the weapons of mass destruction] and will impart a destabilizing impulse to the situation in the Middle East."

On Tuesday -- when the US reintroduced its bans on Iran -- the Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement and criticized the US for violating UN Security Council Resolution 2231 that endorsed the Iran deal.
