Slutsky commented on the lifting of US sanctions exemptions for Iran

The head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky called the lifting of US sanctions exemptions for Iran, the continuation of the aggressive pressure from Washington to Tehran, and is part of a White house campaign to overthrow the regimes.

Earlier, the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that the United States cease all exceptions from sanctions for Iranian peaceful nuclear energy, not counting the 1-th unit of the Bushehr nuclear power plant. This is one of the final cuts imposed on Iran in compliance with nuclear deal in 2015. Washington gave two months to the completion of the peaceful nuclear program of Iran, which would then be subject to sanctions.

"The lifting of US sanctions exemptions for Iran, the continuation of the aggressive pressure from Washington to Tehran. Restriction did not falter even at the peak of the pandemic, which was extremely inhumane in respect of ordinary Iranians," said Slutsky reporters.

He added that coming out of the Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD) in 2018, the United States has repeatedly tried to provoke the Iranian leadership. Slutsky noted that the fate of the agreements again depends on the reaction of Tehran.

The MP stressed that Russia remains committed to the AGREEMENT and all bilateral agreements on cooperation with Iran.

"We hope that it will be possible to avoid the deterioration and final collapse of the Iranian "nuclear deal". Overall, the Pompeo - part of a campaign to overthrow the evil in the White house regimes. Again destructive, again rude, selfish again", - concluded the head of the Duma Committee.
