US Sanction on Russian Firms Illegal: Moscow

Medvedev expressed Moscow's discontent with "Washington's unjust and unilateral move to cause trouble for Russian companies that have contracts with Iranian firms on a series of mutual peaceful nuclear cooperation," Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich told IRNA in Moscow on Thursday.

The Russian president made the remarks in his meeting with the US vice president, who is in Moscow for meetings aimed at improving the US-Russian relations. Biden also met on Thursday with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

The Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman also quoted Medvedev as noting that "Russian firms abide by the avowed rules and principles set forth by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in their peaceful nuclear cooperation with Iran."

Lukashevich, declined to name the Russian companies, which have been slapped with unilateral sanctions by the United States, but stated that Medvedev denounced unilateral sanctions against Tehran over its peaceful domestic nuclear program as "illegitimate" and" unacceptable."

In June 2010, the UN Security Council imposed a fourth round of sanctions against Iran's financial and military sectors under Western pressure.

The United States and its European allies also separately imposed unilateral punitive measures against Iran's energy sector.

Iran says that as a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency and a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it has the right to use peaceful nuclear energy.
