Iran nuclear deal would strengthen global security: Russian deputy FM

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that an agreement on the issue of Iran’s disputed nuclear program would bolster global security.

GENEVA, December 17 (Sputnik) – An agreement on the issue of Iran’s disputed nuclear program would bolster global security, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said as he arrived in Geneva for the 11th round of Iran nuclear talks, scheduled for Wednesday.

“Despite the attempts of some circles in the international community to question the appropriateness of this agreement…we believe that the outcome that we currently foresee for these negotiation efforts would definitely strengthen global and regional security,” Ryabkov said.

According to the Deputy Foreign Minister, “this especially concerns the Middle East, where destabilization tendencies have yet again strengthened in recent times”.

Ryabkov also expressed hope that there will be no rollback in the negotiations this time, adding, however, that an agreement might not be reached tomorrow or the day after.
