Senior Russian Official: ‘We Expect All Sanctions on Iran to be Lifted’

The Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee in Russia’s parliament, Mikhail Margelov, said on Monday that his country expects all economic sanctions against Iran to be removed immediately, Israeli daily Ma’ariv reported.

“There have been important developments. President Hassan Rouhani has openly declared that Iran has no intention to develop an atomic bomb,” Margelov said. ”Furthermore, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, has issued a decree that prohibits the building of a bomb, calling it ‘a sin.’ ”

As a result of these public statements, Marglov concluded, “The conditions have now been met to justify the full lifting of sanctions on Iran.”

According to the senior Russian official, the sanctions issue will be brought up during the next round of talks between the Islamic Republic and world powers, scheduled for March 17.

Iran and the P5+1 countries agreed to a landmark nuclear deal in November 2013 allowing Tehran access to frozen assets in exchange for limitations on the country’s nuclear program. As part of the agreement, the international community effectively accepted peaceful nuclear activity on the part of Tehran.

At the time of the agreement’s signing, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu said it was a ”historic mistake” and that the world had become a more dangerous place as a result.

And why shouldn’t Russia ask for it? This is almost comical. They are ridiculing Obama’s weakness. Unfortunately the real victims are the USA and Israel.

With all the waivers we hand out like candy I’m not sure what difference it makes aside from fooling the rubes at home.

Their ‘religion’ tells them it’s OK to lie to non believers.

This is what happens when you have a weak leader (I can’t call him president, in fact not even a leader).

Putin’s going for the jugular.

What’s the next demand, I wonder?

Certainly, just an extension of what he and Kerry were discussing and planning.

I suppose the Regime wants us to believe it had no foresight about the Russian aggression on Crimea.

I’m sure that by now Iran has the necessary amount of enriched uranium, that:

“There have been important developments.

1. ...

2. ...

3. We have proven that Obama can be manipulated to provide minimal objections to any of our actions, without cconsequences. Since we are essentially in charge, we thought it would save time if we just came right out and made our demands.

Putin has spiked the football and is beginning his endzone dance.

This is just sad and embarrassing. I would be ashamed to flash a US passport anywhere today.

Well, if he says so, I’d also expect our current administration to comply.
