Iran’s ties with any country, including Russia, should not be impacted by sanctions, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian told his Russian counterpart on Monday.
“We are against both war and sanctions. Iran’s ties with countries, including Russia, should not be impacted by sanctions,” Amirabdollahian told Sergei Lavrov in a phone call, according to the Iranian foreign ministry.
It said Lavrov also backed Iran’s “logical demands” in talks between Tehran and world powers in Vienna aimed at reviving a 2015 nuclear deal, which Washington abandoned in 2018.
