President Vladimir Putin said Russia’s decision to lift ban on delivery of S-300 air defense systems to Iran had a clear message to all nations, IRNA reports.
In a meeting with visiting Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran Ali Shamkhani, Putin said such a decision urges all world countries to be faithful to their commitments undertaken by the framework agreement reached by the Security Council members plus Germany in Lausanne on April 2.
US, France, UK, Russia and China, the UN Security Council members undertook to pass a resolution at the top decisionmaking body to terminate all the sanctions adopted against Iran over the nuclear dispute so far.
The new resolution would set a precedent under the international law for the United States and the European Union to follow suit by revoking the unilateral sanctions.
The new Security Council resolution will challenge the legal foundations for the unilateral sanctions.
