Moscow has no intention of taking into account the United States’ illegitimate demands concerning Iran, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a press conference following talks with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif on Thursday, APA reports citing TASS.

"We have heard Washington say that all who those who will fail to share its view of the situation, which brings us back to the need to restore sanctions on Iran, will be punished by additional measures that the US will take, including economic ones," Lavrov pointed out.

"I can only speak on behalf of Russia. When building its policy, Russia will in no way take into account these aggressive demands that have no legal force," he added.

"I hope that other countries that cooperate with Iran will take a principled stand and will be guided by their national interests and not by the need to listen to orders from overseas," Lavrov noted.
