Zarif: Iran sanctions’ removal to eliminate barriers for trade with Russia

The lifting of sanctions against Iran will eliminate all barriers for trade and economic cooperation between Iran and Russia, including in the oil and gas sectors, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Monday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The minister made his remarks at a joint press conference with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, following a bilateral meeting.

“With the removal of sanctions, all barriers for comprehensive, broadened cooperation with Russia are eliminated. Iran and Russia are not only neighbors, we have a very long history of trade and economic, oil cooperation. The agreements we have between Iran and Russia will face fewer hurdles,” Zarif said.
