Iran: Russia warns against Tehran's possible withdrawal from Non-Proliferation Treaty *PARTNER CONTENT*

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Tehran
May 30, 2019 at 07:27 GMT +00:00 · Published

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov stated that Iran's possible decision to "launch a withdrawal procedure" from the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons would be "wrong", speaking in an interview in Tehran on Wednesday.

Top diplomat added that this would not be "an adequate response to what is happening around the JCPOA."

"The Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons is one of the cornerstones of the entire modern international system," Ryabkov concluded.

Ryabkov met his Iranian counterpart Abbas Araghchi in Tehran on Wednesday to discuss the Iran nuclear deal, as tensions ramp up between Iran and the US over the agreement's future.

Iran reduced some of its commitments in the deal earlier in May after months of US sanctions and the US withdrawal from the deal a year earlier.
