Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s meeting with Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif
On January 10, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov met with Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif.
During their conversation, the officials focused on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) concerning the Iranian nuclear programme in view of the continuing counterproductive US policy in this respect. They reaffirmed their commitment to the stable implementation of the JCPOA and their intentions to comply with the obligations in the plan. They expressed their mutual opinion that the possible disruption of the JCPOA, due to Washington’s policy, would run counter to the goal of maintaining international and regional security and stability, and have a negative effect on multilateral efforts in nuclear non-proliferation.
The ministers agreed to continue close bilateral contact on this subject.
They also addressed several current regional issues, including the situation in Syria.
