Washington is doing everything possible to disrupt dialogue between Iran and the Persian Gulf states, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Thursday at a press conference.
“We are interested in Iran and the Arab states [of the Persian Gulf] establishing a normal dialogue, reaching confidence-building agreements, transparency in military affairs and developing cooperating in general.
According to Lavrov, the Russian proposal to create a security strategy for the Persian Gulf is particularly aimed at developing dialogue between Iran and the Arab states.
Unfortunately, our American colleagues up, at least the current administration, have been doing their utmost to thwart this dialogue up until now,” he said.
“It is crucial that no one interfere in this process and take actions aimed at undermining the very efforts to create this dialogue,” he underlined.
