 Russias top officials: the US sanctions against Iraq are illegal and continue to engage in oil trade with Iraq.


[World Wide Web] After the U.S. announced Tuesday that it would restart sanctions against Iran, Russia said the U.S. sanctions against Iran were illegal and said it would continue to trade crude oil with Tehran after the sanctions came into effect next week.

The United States announced on Monday that it will restart all sanctions against Iraq lifted by the Iranian nuclear agreement and take effect on Monday (5). The sanctions cover shipping, finance and energy, which is also the second set of sanctions to be restarted after the Trump government announced its withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement in May.

We should look for mechanisms to enable us to continue to develop cooperation with our partners, including Iran. Novak said in an interview.

Under the oil-for-commodity agreement of 2014, Russia used hard currency to buy Iranian oil, while Iran used the money to buy Russian goods.

In the interview, the energy minister made it clear that the deal would continue next week.

He also said Moscow believed the US sanctions were illegal. We are already living under sanctions, Nowak said. We do not recognize unilateral sanctions without the United Nations. We consider these measures to be illegal in themselves.

In addition to Russias energy minister, the Russian Foreign Ministry also issued a statement on the 3rd, saying that it resolutely condemned this destructive action, and urged the United States to immediately re-examine its policy of imposing sanctions on Iran. In July 2015, Iran reached a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue with the six countries (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany). Under the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community to lift sanctions against Iraq. Despite Trumps announcement that the United States had withdrawn from the agreement, other parties defended the agreement and pledged to work hard to protect it. Al Jazeera also revealed Thursday that the United Kingdom, Germany, France and the European Union issued a joint statement on the 2nd, expressing deep regret over the decision of the United States to restart sanctions, and has announced plans to establish a special purpose financial instrument to enable trade between Europe and Iran to continue, although this will not be completed before Mondays sanctions come into force. .
