The statement was made days after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov demanded the US guarantee that Russian trade with Iran would not be affected by sanctions imposed on Moscow over its military operation in Ukraine.

In reply to the EU’s move, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that the pause in negotiations with world powers on the restoration of the JCPOA could create impetus to resolve any outstanding problems.

But he reiterated that there are no external factors affecting the common will of the parties towards a collective agreement.
