US Sanctions on Iran amid Vienna Talks

Russia and China have criticized the United States’ fresh round of sanctions on Iran, urging Washington to demonstrate a more constructive approach and to actively respond to the legitimate concerns of the Iranian side in the course of negotiations in Vienna to revive the 2015 deal.
In a tweet on Friday, Russia’s lead negotiator to the Vienna talks Mikhail Ulyanov said the new US sanctions indicate that the US is trying to preserve some sanctions slapped by former President Donald Trump on the Islamic Republic. “The #ViennaTalks on #JCPOA remain on hold for 2, 5 months. Looks like the #US tries to preserve some #sanctions imposed by D. Trump in #Iran,” Ulyanov wrote in his tweet.
“#Washington needs to demonstrate a more constructive and businesslike approach if [it] is really committed to nuclear #nonproliferation.” On Wednesday, the United States imposed sanctions on what it described as a Russian-backed oil smuggling and money laundering network for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s Quds Force.
