Speaking with Russia 24, the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov warned the Western negotiators against delaying the enactment of trust-building measures as agreed with Iran in Geneva.
"The European Union is delaying the enactment of agreements made within the 5+1 group with Iran in Geneva. There is the threat that agreements may be postponed,” asserted Lavrov.
The Russian Foreign Minister stated "It is to regret that the enactment of the first stage has been delayed, because the EU has informed us that the agreements must first be approved by all EU members. It is highly probable that the issue will be considered on December 16.”
Meanwhile Lavrov deemed it unlikely for the EU members to agree to the document, in which case it will be relegated to January next year as the six-month time span to enact the first step hurries along.
"That worries us and we try to direct the attention of our allies in the EU to take care not to create an unbridgeable problem against the agreements, lest the very valuable agreements made in Geneva, which are a unique, historic achievement, should go waste,” he maintained.
