#Russia President Putin’s special envoy for #Syria Lavrentiev today met #Iran's National Security Council Secretary Shamkhani, in Tehran, to brief Iranian officials on the latest trilateral meeting between Russian, American & Israeli security officials.
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov:We decided for ourselves in Russia never to negotiate w US on any of the US #sanctions imposed upon Russia. & we very firmly sustain the course, irrespective of what, because any sign of weakness will only show to them that they should pressurize more.
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov on recent #EU parliamentary elections: I believe these elections went, in most aspects, close to our expectations … we believe that after this elections, the EU will be a more predictable, although not an easier partner, to Russia.
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov: Currently the #JCPOA is in intensive care. It is alive but it is a big issue, a big question whether all of us, the #Iran-ian side, ourselves, Europeans, the Chinese would be able to sustain the deal. I don’t see an immediate risk for the JCPOA to collapse.
#Russia's deputy foreign minister Ryabkov says that it is a due moment for political leader to meet, discuss and decide on the future of #Iran nuclear deal.
#Russia is claiming that, its #domesticNetwork or #Runet can control #FakeNews but according to @UKZak , it is not transparent who/which system will judge about a news/fact’s character. There is no system introduced to public yet.
But it can be expected from #Russia, when it says it does not accept sanctions, to not offer additional barrels of #oil to the market and not promise to increase further production, as to not make it to easy to sanction #Iran's oil.
Iranian people are observing closely./۲ #OOTT
What I can say about the JTC meeting is that #Russia is seeking to seize the quota of #OPEC countries that did not manage to produce #oil at a specified rate and is seeking to get OPEC's approval on this./۱ #JMMC#OOTT
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov: Not possible for #US to bring #Iran’s #oil exports down to zero … [On talks to preserve #JCPOA], we have a very tight timeline before November, but I’m very convinced that we would be able to deliver within this period.
«The ideal outcome for #Russia would be a renegotiated deal that avoids war and slows down Trump’s sanctions offensive, with the added perk being the enormous economic influence that it would then wield over Iran and could possibly leverage to other ends.»
#Russia's Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, in a meeting with Iranian counterpart, said that Moscow will update #Iran on the results of the trilateral meeting of US, Russian & #Israel's security chiefs over #Syria.
#Russia DepFM on #Iran's proposed non-aggression pact to Persian Gulf countries: It’s a great idea … Of course any treaty, any pact can be reversed. We know this also from the very recent past but it’s better to have one rather than end up in a complete mess.
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov: There are very irresponsible elements, including at very responsible positions, who for one or another reason, believe that now is the moment when #Iran should be bullied further if need be with military power.
#Russia DepFM on Iran's decision to reduce nuclear commitments: We fully appreciate the reasons behind this act … one thing which the Europeans should do would be a focused effort to rebalance the #JCPOA and offer #Iran better incentives to be within the deal.
#Russia's deputy foreign minister Ryabkov talks about the #JCPOA & some developments surrounding #Iran & the region, in an interview with me published on Iran Front Page (IFP News).

#Iran's foreign minister @JZarif left Tehran for Moscow to meet #Russia's foreign minister over the future of #IranDeal, and regional & bilateral issues. Iran will tomorrow announce countermeasures against US withdrawal from the #JCPOA. Zarif will discuss that tomorrow in Moscow.
I’ve talked to @UKZak of @DigitalBarriers & @Forbes about the technical aspects of what's called #Runet- #Russia’s #DomesticNetwork.
Here are some details. The original interview's been published in Farsi, on @hamshahrinews
#Iran, #Turkey & #Russia could bring #sanction to its knees. When defeated, #Europe will gain confidence & could start its new political life with less reliance on the #US. By using the new opportunities, we have to establish new arrangements in the international politics.
#Iran’s FM Zarif will travel to Geneva tomorrow on Tuesday to attend a meeting with #Russia & #Turkey FMs hosted by UN special Syria envoy Steffan de Mistura over the committee tasked to write the [new] constitution of #Syria, said Iran MFA spox.
Iranian Energy Minister & new chairman of #Iran and #Russia’s joint commission, Reza Ardakanian, told the state TV:
«We want to make Iran and Russia’s national grids synchronous through two paths»
«We will hold the first meeting of the joint commission in early March ۲۰۱۹» #OOTT
#Turkey FM @MevlutCavusoglu today had a phone conversation with #Iran FM @JZarif over #Idlib agreement made in #Sochi. Both agreed to follow up the details of the agreement in a trilateral meeting of Iran, #Russia & Turkey FMs in #NewYork.
#Iran’s #OPEC Governor: "There is no doubt that all are against Iran. As I said before, #Russia & #Saudi are not currently able to increase a high volume of #oil production,but they may be able to increase their production by a total of ۸۰۰,۰۰۰ to ۱ Mbpd in ۶months to one year …
#Russia DepFM Ryabkov: There is no other way, but to eradicate terrorist enclaves in #Idlib … #Turkey is under a heavy pressure from #US & western camp not to allow operation of Idlib to happen.
