Big 5

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday lifting an arms embargo against Iran should be a priority after a permanent deal on Tehran’s nuclear program is reached.

“We are calling for lifting the embargo as soon as possible and we will support the choices that Iran’s negotiators make,” Lavrov said on the sidelines of a BRICS summit in the Russian city of Ufa.

Russia is among the six world powers negotiating with Iran a permanent nuclear deal for Tehran, but talks have been complicated and deadline for the agreement postponed.
