Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called on the US to immediately lift the sanctions imposed on Iran, describing them as "illegal".

Lavrov indicated, during the Moscow Non-Proliferation Conference, that Washington continues to pursue a policy of pressure on Iran to dictate its conditions related to Tehran's nuclear program.

He stressed the need to comply with Security Council Resolution No. 2231, to enable Tehran to implement its voluntary obligations under the Convention on Biological Diversity, “the Joint Plan of Action on Tehran's Nuclear Program.”

It is noteworthy that Russia, Germany, China, the UK, France, and the US signed a joint action plan with Iran in 2015, which included lifting sanctions in exchange for limiting the Iranian nuclear program.
