US statements on fresh sanctions on Iran are absurd: Russian minister
MOSCOW (RUSSIA) – US comments on reimposing UN sanctions against Iran are absurd, Russia’s RIA news agency quoted Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Thursday.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Russia and China not to disregard the reimposition of UN curbs on Iran, which President Donald Trump has instructed him to trigger at the UN Security Council in New York on Thursday.
Ryabkov added that such a move would cause a crisis at the UN security council.
