Sergey Lavrov: "It's time to finally close the Iranian problem"

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged to begin consultations on reaching a final agreement with Iran on the nuclear issue. He made such a statement at a press conference following talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.


"The main thing, in my opinion, is to do everything that was agreed upon (Iran and the" six "), not to try to interpret the agreements written in this document extensively or narrowly, parallelly, which is very important, to begin consultations on the parameters of the final package, which will arrange everything point over the "i" and close this problem completely, "- said the Russian minister.


"Minimally specific agreements were agreed at the ministerial level. Agreements to be fulfilled by Iran, agreements to be fulfilled by the five plus one countries, primarily by those who imposed unilateral sanctions to circumvent the Security Council," the Russian foreign minister said.

Lavrov noted that the IAEA inspectors continue their work in Iran, taking into account the agreements reached in Geneva.

"We reviewed the outcome of the Geneva meeting, at which an agreement was reached on a phased and mutual advancement in resolving the situation around the Iranian nuclear program, so that the result of this work was the recognition of Iran’s right to a peaceful atom, including the right to enrich uranium for these purposes, at the closing all the questions that remain with the IAEA ", - said Sergey Lavrov.


According to him, progress has been made in relations between Iran and the IAEA.

“We have a common understanding that we need to implement the Geneva document in good faith to all parties, we will strive to achieve this. As well as we will work hard and purposefully work on the next stage of the settlement: the final package that will completely close this problem in the foreseeable future”, - noted Lavrov.

“We have set ambitious deadlines, both Russia and Iran are aimed at meeting these deadlines,” Lavrov stressed. Speaking about the preliminary agreements reached by the "six" and Iran in November, Sergei Lavrov noted that their implementation has already begun.

"The IAEA inspectors are already continuing their work in Iran, taking into account the agreements that were reached in Geneva. The new committee consisting of the members of the 5 + 1 group, Iran and the IAEA will help this process. And, of course, those consultations help that are intensively between Iran and the IAEA on issues that the agency would like to clarify to the end, "he explained.


Sergei Lavrov said that he did not arrive in Iran as a representative of the "six" international intermediaries for the Iranian nuclear program.

“I’m not in my capacity as a representative of the 5 + 1 group, I don’t have any special powers from this group,” he told a press conference on the Russia 24 channel.

According to the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, "at this stage nothing of this is required, because the agreement is fixed on paper."

“It took a lot of time to negotiate this agreement,” Lavrov said.

In Tehran on November 11, the IAEA and the government of Iran agreed to expand cooperation, and on November 24 in Geneva, representatives of the Six (five permanent members of the Security Council and Germany) agreed with Iran that it would sharply limit uranium enrichment in exchange for a gradual reduction of international sanctions in respect for Tehran.

The United States and several other Western countries suspect Iran of developing nuclear weapons under cover of the peaceful atom program. Tehran rejects all accusations, stating that its nuclear program is aimed solely at meeting the country's electricity needs.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif noted Russia's important role in "preventing a regional catastrophe in Syria." Sergei Lavrov, in turn, recalled that the Russian Federation is in favor of Iran’s participation in a peace conference. By the end of 2013, invitations to Geneva-2, which will take place on 22 on January 2014, should be sent out.

SixAgreement with Iran: a deal of the century or a mistake of the century?

Western countries are beginning to realize the need for Iran to participate in the Geneva-2 international conference on Syria, said Sergey Lavrov. “In my contacts with Western colleagues, with colleagues from the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, I begin to feel their growing understanding of the importance of inviting all key players, including Iran,” he said.

"Lakhdar Brahimi and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon are also in favor of this," the minister continued.

"I hope that the list of those to whom invitations to Geneva-2 will be sent out, and this should be done before the end of the year, the Islamic Republic of Iran will also appear," Lavrov said.

Referring to the possible threats of disruption of the Geneva-2 conference on Syria, he said that such attempts would be a gross violation of the will of the international community.

"The date of the conference has already been announced, and attempts to disrupt this event will be a gross violation of the will of the international community," said Lavrov.

At the same time, the Russian Foreign Minister noted that he had not heard of statements by Saudi Arabia’s representatives that if Syrian President Bashar Assad intends to participate in future elections, the country will not assist in convening the Geneva-2 conference.

“I have not heard of such a statement by the representatives of Saudi Arabia, but I presume that the initiative of holding Geneva-2 received the full support of the international community. This initiative was supported by the UN Security Council resolution 2118, which was adopted by consensus The UN is mandatory for all members of the organization to implement, ”said Sergey Lavrov.

The minister added: “We occasionally hear that a country is dissatisfied with the upcoming event - I hope that it will surely take place, that someone considers it much more productive, quick to solve the problem by force, through external intervention. But confirming these rumors I I did not receive from anyone. "

He stressed that he firmly proceeds from the fact that "the responsible countries must do everything so that the Russian-American initiative, approved unanimously in the UN Security Council, is crowned with success."

In turn, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif assured that relations with Russia are long-term.

“Our relations contribute to ensuring security in the region and around the world,” said Zarif. “They are long-term and principled.”

"The role of Russia as a member of the Six was very important and influential," he added. "This is our best friend."

He also said that Russia's role is very important "in overcoming the regional catastrophe in Syria."

"We are cooperating on this issue," said the head of the Iranian Foreign Ministry. "We hope that this will help ensure overall security."

At the same time, Iran insists on the fulfillment by Russia of its obligations to supply anti-aircraft missile systems C-300.

“We still insist on the implementation of our previous agreements. Our negotiations continue and will continue between various high-ranking officials of the two countries,” Zarif said.

"We hope that, on the basis of good and warm relations between the two countries and in view of the existing promising cooperation projects, the parties will be able to resolve this issue," he said, answering the journalists' question whether Iran would agree to the supply of Antey-2500 complexes instead of C-300.

        Sorry if I disappoint someone, but for me personally, Lavrov, as a person with his own opinion, ceased to exist after this:
        http://www.interfax.ru/russia/txt.asp?id=308664
        Too lazy to read, I’ll briefly tell you.
        The consul general of Russia in Simferopol Vladimir Andreev declared:
        In an interview with the Crimean ATR TV channel on May 21, Andreev, speaking about why he did not recommend Russian pilots, students and associates of the twice hero of the Soviet Union, test pilot Amet Khan Sultan, to go to the premiere of the film "Khaitarma", which, based on his biography, tells about the deportation of the Crimean Tatars, said that Russia could not be represented at the premiere of the film "distorting the truth about the Great Patriotic War."

        The Consul General also expressed his conviction that "the topic of collaboration and complicity with the occupants must be present in all events" that relate to the deportation of the Crimean Tatars. In response to the comment of the Crimean journalist Lilya Budzhurova that his statements could be offensive to the Crimean Tatar people, the diplomat said: “I have just said something new? I don’t need your advice. Everything I said is completely official. Write down and scroll to any Crimean Tatar. My word and the word of Russia must sound, must be known, including my interview, in order for the truth about the Great Patriotic War to sound ... This is precisely the theme of betrayal. "

        After that, Lavrov took it off !!!
        consul's answer:
        “I remain with my opinion and every word of my opinion. And I regard the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Russia-IF) as helpless, stupid and unprincipled, dishonoring the Russian Foreign Ministry. positions, from which it is impossible to deviate. And in general, for such statements it is necessary to punish everyone who writes them, and who allows their publication, "he told Interfax-Ukraine on Friday.

        See the original material at http://www.interfax.ru/russia/txt.asp?id=308664

        This, in my opinion, is the Real Consul, and Lavrov ....

          The Consul General must be aware that his words can harm his country, even if he is right. Lavrov is a world-class diplomat, and the Consul General acted like a boy!

          Lavrov took it off correctly, this is not a professional act, no matter how right he is, it is not to speak at a rally. Now, if he said it this way, everyone would smile and applaud, including the Crimean Tatars, and only then would they scratch their heads with the words: "It seems we are nay ... and". Then he would also be given an order laughing.

    Friendship is friendship, and tobacco and gunpowder must be kept dry. God forbid, after solving their problems on the atom with Israel, they will decide that now everything is in chocolate.
    God forbid, then they will take care of their neighbors and here Russia can get a serious headache in the Caspian region.

      Reading Comments after articles of this kind, i.e. concerning the interaction of Russia with our neighbors (spit about whom) there must be a chelovechek who thoughtfully writes something like: "Friendship is friendship, and tobacco and gunpowder must be kept dry. God forbid" In general, following their logic - in pi .. friends in pi ... girlfriends, I'm myself pi ..date friend (sorry for the harshness) !!!!
      De facto, they put Russia in a rank with countries that are afraid to sneeze - they suddenly sucked in, remembered their existence and offended ...
      No matter what, our country is in the first three (militarily) among the countries of the world / according to Amerov’s second, China is the third / and the regression of military and military-industrial complex in the near future is definitely not threatening us ..
      Russia is a strong state, and let others either be friends with us, or they are afraid !!!! angry

    We must raise the question in general about the status of the Middle East as free from WMD. A very good step has been taken, meaning Syria. Israel remained. And it will be a word of technology with Iran.

    Messrs. VO bloggers, I love diplomats in a non-figurative sense.
    But I dare say that in the second photo, Lavrov in two headphones.
    Further, each, in the sense of its meaning.
    The main thing is to make sense, and so on - tautology.
    Let the probable adversary think that he is right, duties creep in unnoticed.

    You need to be friends. Especially if the states do pull out of Afghanistan. But with these guys you need to be careful A.S. Griboyedov. Yes, and Herodotus said that it is necessary to be friends and honor other people's customs, but also remember that: "It is a Persian custom to bury victims in the ground alive."

    )) Well, I understand the Military site, that in many articles we are discussing here, we advise what how to make the military.
    But to teach what to do laurels, it is already crossing all sorts of borders. We are still not diplomats.
