Lavrov: Russia is categorically against a military solution to Iranian problem

  • Tuesday, April 3, 04:54

Russia is categorically against a military solution to the Iranian problem, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a meeting with the teaching staff of the Yerevan State University on Monday. 

Lavrov said there are forces who neglect the real chances to hold constructive talks over the Iranian problem in order to finally resolve the problems and to liquidate the reasons of the sanctions.  "These forces lead the problem to confrontation, which is absolutely unacceptable to Russia. Today the sanctions against Iran cover the oil and gas sphere, the banking system, and it is clear that such measures oppress Iranian economy, and this gives a right to Tehran to claim that the key goal of foreign forces is to overthrow the regime, not to resolve the nuclear problem", he said.     

When assessing possible infliction of preventive blows on Iran and the effectiveness of Moscow's tools of counteraction against this scenario, the Russian FM stressed that Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, will do everything possible for the international law to be respected not only in words, but also in practice.   

"Certainly, if an idea comes into somebody's head to inflict a blow on Iran, he will not apply to the UN Security Council for permit. In the meantime, I do hope that all the other member countries of this structure remember their legal obligations fixed in the UN Charter.  The Charter forbids the use of force, unless it is used by the decision of the Security Council or unless it is used as a response to a direct armed attack", Lavrov said.
