‘An Iranian lawmaker says cooperation and interaction between Iran and Russia can render Western sanctions against the two countries ineffective.
“Cooperating and bringing closer together the viewpoints of the two countries on regional and international issues, and identifying commercial and trade potentialities can definitely neutralize sanctions,” said Ramezan-Ali Sobhanifar, the Iranian head of the Iran-Russia Parliamentary Friendship Group in a meeting with Russian lawmaker Yuri Saviliev.
The US and EU have imposed an array of embargoes on Russian individuals and businesses over the crisis in Ukraine. They accuse Moscow of supporting anti-Kiev protesters in eastern and southern Ukraine. Russia denies the allegation
The US and its European allies have imposed sanctions against Iran under the allegation that the Islamic Republic pursues non-civilian objectives in its nuclear work. Iran denies the accusation.
Elsewhere in the meeting, the Iranian lawmaker also said the development of ties between the parliaments of the two countries can contribute to the promotion of political, economic and cultural ties between Tehran and Moscow.’
