Lavrov responded to the US claims about Russia’s violation of UN security Council resolutions


“No reason to suspect Russia of violating resolution [UN security Council] 2231 is not available. In this case, neither the delivery nor sale or transfer of military aircraft to Iran did not happen,” — said at a press conference in Moscow, foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. That is the supply, sale or transfer of the aircraft prevents the resolution drew the attention of the Minister.

“There’s not much to discuss, and if someone wants to look for the “fleas” that occurs in relation to the continuing restrictions on trade and other communication with Iran, then we will have to figure out how a huge amount of cash from the United States were in Iran, why did Bank transfers from the USA to Iran in dollars, that is strictly forbidden by American law,” Lavrov said (quoted by “Interfax”) .

According to the Minister, this will only distract from the main task — to coordinate in settling the Syrian crisis. The foreign Minister noted that Russia and the US continue to discuss specific mechanisms for the settlement in Syria on the level of intelligence and the military to develop agreements that were reached during the visit of U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry in Moscow on July 15. Then, Kerry held talks with President Vladimir Putin and his counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

Moscow, according to Lavrov, considers it necessary to further attend to the ways to prevent terrorists obtaining replenishment ammunition.

Lavrov said that Russia is helping the UN to coordinate with the Syrian government the monitoring settings on the Turkish-Syrian border, is discussing with the United States and the United Nations the possibility of ensuring control after crossing the Turkish-Syrian border in the so-called road of Castello. If such control is provided, it will be possible to achieve real ceasefire, Lavrov believes.

That Russia relocated to the base of Hamadan in Iran bombers Tu-22MZ and used them to attack the positions of terrorists in Syria, it became known on August 16. On Tuesday evening the official representative of US state Department mark Toner said that the Russian military base in Iran may violate the resolution of the UN Security Council 2231 adopted to resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear program.
