    Iran’s previous actions were the impetus for the international sanctions and negotiations that led to this final deal. Cheating or intransigence on the part of Iran would take us back to where we were before a deal, the final deal contains strong snap-back provisions that would restore sanctions in 65 days if Iran violates the agreement. This provision will be important for maintaining international unity going forward.

  5. Sergey Lavrov:

    The attempt of Americans to build a unipolar world did not succeed, they understand it. The whole world understands that you can't do without Russia. The very fact of a meeting and dialogue is a vivid confirmation of it. Honor and praise to President Vladimir V. Putin for being able to strengthen Russia's authority in the international arena so that no matter how the Americans and the EU try to exist in confrontation with us, to pressure us with sanctions, they still have to look for ways of getting closer with us. They all still have to come to Russia.
