Russia says US sanctions on Iran will not affect Moscow-Tehran cooperation
Russia said on Tuesday new US sanctions against Iran would have no political or practical consequences for Moscow's cooperation with Tehran, the Interfax news agency reported, citing Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.

The United States Monday slapped new sanctions on Iran's defense ministry and others involved in its nuclear and weapons program to support the US assertion that all UN sanctions against Tehran are now restored, a stance which key European allies as well as Russia and China reject.

Ryabkov also said that Russia had not given the United States any new deadlines in negotiations over the New START treaty, their last major nuclear arms pact, but said time was running out.
