Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticised the United States’ “absolutely unacceptable actions” against Iran at the Moscow Nonproliferation Conference on Friday.
“Despite the well-known and absolutely unacceptable actions of Washington, the JCPOA is still in place,” said the minister.
According to Lavrov, Iran was “the most checked country in the world” after the 2015 nuclear pact.
“It [the agreement] has answered all questions the IAEA had for Tehran, created a situation of maximum transparency of the Iran’s nuclear programme, confirmed the legitimate rights of this country to develop peaceful atom technologies under control of the agency.”
The foreign minister also reiterated that Moscow would respond reciprocally to any possible US missile deployment in any region following Washington’s decision to quit the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
The Moscow Nonproliferation Conference, which is being held between November 7-9, is jointly organised by the Moscow-based Centre for Energy and Security Studies and Russia’s Foreign Ministry.
The three-day event gathers together around 250 experts from over 40 countries.
