Iranian Envoy Dismisses Unilateral Bans over Crimea

Iran’s Envoy to Russia Mehdi Sanaei pointed to the bans recently imposed by the US and EU against a number of Russian, Crimean and Ukrainian individuals, and underlined that sanctions are not proper way to deal with crises.

Sanaei also called for a peaceful resolution of the crisis, the Russian Interfax reported.

“Dialogue among all sides is the most optimal way to resolve the issues that arise in a region or on the international arena.”

“Normally, the issues that arise must be resolved precisely by the countries that are part of that region,” the Iranian diplomat added.
