Russian representative in the Un Security Council meeting said that the US maximum pressure campaign against Iran has failed and united the other member countries of the Security Council."

Iran PressAmerica: The Russian representative made the remarks Tuesday in the UN Security Council VTC session on the implementation of resolution 2231, which endorsed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program.

"The illegal claims of the United States and the re-imposition of sanctions on Iran indicated the unrealistic stances of the United States," Al Jazeera quoted him as saying.

Over the past year, the United States has used every opportunity to punish Iran, he said, adding, "US authorities have tried to convince themselves and the rest of the world that maximum pressure on Iran is the only possible way to resolve all problems."

All these efforts failed and members of the UN Security Council showed considerable unity, he stressed.

Iran had previously warned of the consequences of such actions and this issue is also mentioned in Article 36 of the UN Security Council, he said, stating, "Once again, we regret that leaders of the United Nations did not have the courage to explicitly call on the United States to return fully and unconditionally to adhere to UN Security Council Resolution and JCPOA and to stop all acts that have violated these documents."

He added: "To show that Iran is the source of all problems in the region is not the right approach."

The Russian representative stated: "We call on Tehran to fully adhere to the JCPOA if the United States returns. We must work through negotiations to achieve stability in the Persian Gulf region and prevent any military confrontation in this region."
