Russia has lambasted the apparent US intention to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and scrap the agreement. Such a move could be one of Washington’s grave foreign policy mistakes, Russia’s deputy foreign minister said.
Moscow believes that Washington has either already made or is close to making a decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), according to deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov.
“This may be one of Washington’s major foreign policy mistakes, one of the major failures of American politics,” Ryabkov told Interfax on Saturday.
The diplomat also urged the international community to stand up to the US sanctions, which he described as “chaos and madness.”
