Foreign Minister Javad Zarif visited Moscow to discuss bilateral cooperation, JCPOA-related developments and regional matters. During a joint press conference, Zarif’s Russian counterpart rejected “any U.S. demands to introduce some indefinite arms embargo and invoke the ‘snapback’ mechanism to reimpose the former UN Security Council sanctions resolutions on Iran”. He added that “Resolution 2231… remains fully valid” and “the U.S.’s illegal initiatives and actions cannot have any international legal implications for other countries”.
