Russian Federation says Aegis Ashore threatens ties with Japan

The deal reached by six world powers and Iran offered sanctions relief in exchange for limits on Tehran's nuclear program.

Lavrov said that USA threats to walk away from the deal would undermine any future agreement with North Korea.

A statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov that Russia has not allegedly violated the Budapest Memorandum is absurd, and Lavrov understands this perfectly.

"Unfortunately, our American colleagues still want to operate only on the basis of dictating policy, issuing ultimatums, they do not want to hear the perspectives of other centers of world politics", Lavrov said on Monday.

"The actions of [the U.S.] administration demonstrate fear of fair competition in a number of areas, [particularly] energy, gas supplies to Europe, when instead of Russian gas, supplies of US liquefied natural gas are imposed, which is significantly more expensive". The United States has also said Iran's ballistic missile tests go against the spirit of the agreement. He said that Germany would analyze the situation with its European partners. "We work with facts, and facts are what we have today, so we just do what needs to be done to advance Russia's interests under the current circumstances", he responded.

Iran insists it has the right to conduct its missile program and has accused the United States of working to undermine the nuclear deal. Representatives from 20 countries will be attending, but not Russian Federation or China, and Lavrov said he does not expect anything to come from the meeting.

Lavrov also criticized the suggestion made at the White House to rewrite the 2015 nuclear agreement negotiated with Iran.

"We will not support what the United States is trying to do, changing the wording of the agreement, incorporating things that will be absolutely unacceptable for Iran", Lavrov told a news conference in Moscow.

"The sides exchanged views on a number of vital global issues, in particular the Syrian settlement in the context of holding the Syrian National Dialogue Congress in Sochi and also the situation around the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program", the ministry said. Russian Federation also refused to repatriate tens of thousands of North Korean laborers, and in October provided an internet connection to the reclusive state. The Kremlin denies the accusations.

Lavrov told a press conference that the Japanese decision overshadows relations between Japan and Russian Federation, adding that his country understands that offensive weapons can also be used under the Aegis Ashore system.
