Blinken says Russia has self-interest in preventing nuclear-armed Iran

Russia has a vested interest in stopping Iran from gaining nuclear weapons, according to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a visit to Estonia on Tuesday.

“We are still working to see whether we can return to mutual compliance with Iran on the accord. Russia remains committed to these efforts, and it has a vested interest in preventing Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon “Blinken explained.

Moscow threw a potential spanner in the works on Saturday, just as months of indirect talks between Tehran and Washington in Vienna appeared to be headed for an agreement, with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying the Western sanctions over Ukraine had become a stumbling block for a nuclear deal.
