EghtesadOnline: Moscow categorically disagreed with US claims that Iran's missile program is carried out in violation of a UNSC resolution on the issue, Russian deputy foreign minister emphasized.
"Moscow categorically disagrees with US claims that Iran's missile program is carried out in violation of a UNSC resolution on the issue as the United States and some other Western countries attempt to misrepresent the situation," Russian deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov told Sputnik.
Earlier on Tuesday, Ryabkov held a meeting in Tehran with Iranian foreign minister’s deputies Abbas Araghchi and Majid Takht-Ravanchi on the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (CAPA), ISNA reported.
"We discussed the situation with the consideration of the Iranian dossier in the framework of the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, and concluded that there are also a number of issues on which we have to work actively together," Ryabkov said.
“Some Western countries, including the United States, are attempting to paint the Iranian missile program in a false light, present the case in such a way that this program does not meet the requirements of resolution 2231," he added.
"We categorically disagree with this," the Russian diplomat stressed.
In July 2015, the JCPOA was reached between Iran and six international mediators, including the United States.
