Russian Federation won't back Trump's efforts to alter Iran deal

039;Russia Ready to Support Direct Talks on N. Korea Crisis'

Russian Federation was among the group of nations - including China, France, Britain, Germany and the European Union - that entered into the deal brokered by former President Obama that forces Iran to limit its nuclear programs in exchange for sanctions being lifted. He blames Washington for provoking North Korea into a nuclear confrontation and for obstructing the Iran nuclear agreement.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov speaks during his annual news conference, with Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova seen in the background, in Moscow, Russia January 15, 2018.

Russian Federation has been fairly consistent in resisting worldwide efforts to pressure Pyongyang, vetoing several United Nations resolutions for strict sanctions on the country. West are losing their absolutely dominant positions they enjoyed for at least five centuries, as new centers of economic growth, financial power, and political influence are emerging in the natural course of history, ' Lavrov said.

"The actions of [the U.S.] administration demonstrate fear of fair competition in a number of areas, [particularly] energy, gas supplies to Europe, when instead of Russian gas, supplies of US liquefied natural gas are imposed, which is significantly more expensive".

The United States needs to face the hard reality that it is no longer the world's only superpower and adapt to an increasingly multipolar world, Lavrov said. He said that Germany would analyze the situation with its European partners. He said that the current administration must understand that they are no longer the world's only superpower and the world is now multipolar.

Iran insists it has the right to conduct its missile program and has accused the United States of working to undermine the nuclear deal.

Russian Federation and China have both said they support talks between the two Korean nations, Lavrov said. Mr. Lavrov denied those accusations again.

Russia's chief diplomat said Monday that Moscow will not back efforts by the United States to change the Iran nuclear deal.

Trump's decision to again waive sanctions also comes amid high tensions over North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile program. Iran has insisted its nuclear work was exclusively peaceful, and in exchange for limiting its uranium enrichment, among other concessions, it won relief from economic sanctions that badly hurt its economy.
