The Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Serguei Lavrov, warned the international community this Tuesday of attempts to isolate Iran which could include a war scenario.


It is necessary to avoid an isolation of Iran by the international community, especially by the United States, in such a way that an aggression against that Persian country could be avoided, Lavrov said.

Such a possibility would be totally counterproductive. We rather advocate a quieter situation in the region, the head of Russian diplomacy remarked, who advocated a normalization of ties between the Gulf States.

Some international players, declared Lavrov, in a clear allusion to the United States, try from the outside to strengthen the contradictions among nations of the Levantine region, something that is totally counterproductive, he added.

The Russian minister considered it a bad idea to bring political and ideological contradictions to a military one in the Levantine region, the diplomat observed.

We hope that the countries of the Persian Gulf understand the adventurous nature of the calls to bring the isolation policy in Tehran to a military level, Lavrov said.

Referring to the Instex payment system, the Russian head of Foreign Affairs pointed out that this was not enough to compensate for the damage caused by the withdrawal of the United States from the General Plan of Global Action on the Iranian nuclear program.
