Starting negotiations with Iran under US pressures impossible: Russia

MNA – The Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has said that his country supports Iran’s missile program, calling the criticisms against the Iranian missile nonsense.

Talking to reporters on Tuesday, after Iran’s launching of Payam satellite, which a technical failure prevented it from placing into the orbit, Sergey Ryabkov reacted to Western countries’ criticism against Iranian missile program.

Sergey Ryabkov said “it is very difficult to imagine that talks on Iran’s missile program would start under US pressures.’

He stressed that barrage of criticism against the development of Iran’s missile program is ‘meaningless.’
