Fars news agency reports on Wednesday that during a speech in Kerman, Ahmadinejad addressed the Russian president Dimitri Medvedev saying that Tehran-Moscow relations require “mutual respect.” Ahmadinejad criticized Russia’s stance against Iran’s nuclear programme and warned them they should take care not to turn into Iran’s “historical enemies.”
“Today, explaining the actions of the Russian president to the Iranian people has become difficult. The people wonder whether they are our friends, whether they are beside us and with us or if they have other objectives.”
Russia, which has often acted as an Iranian ally in the international arena, has cooperated with the new US initiatives to step up sanctions against Iran. “Iran would not act against the interests of Russia simply because it is under pressure from another source.”
Ahmadinejad also addressed the American president: “Mr. Obama should realize that the Tehran agreement is a historical opportunity for him and reveals Iran is willing to make changes.” Iran has finally agreed to allow for exchange of uranium with the West, on Turkish territory.
The US administration has worked hard in the past month to commence a new set of sanctions against Iran and much of these efforts revolved around drawing the agreement of Russia and China, two permanent members of the Security Council that have repeatedly blocked UN sanctions against Iran.
At the threshold of introducing the first draft of the new sanctions at the UN, Iran signed the Tehran nuclear swap deal. However the US and some European countries claim the agreement is still incomplete.
