American sanctions imposed on Russia following its invasion of Ukraine should have no impact on the potential revival of the Iran nuclear deal, the US State Department says according to Reuters.

“The new Russia-related sanctions are unrelated to the JCPOA and should not have any impact on its potential implementation,” a spokesperson says, referring to the 2015 accord by its initials.

“We continue to engage with Russia on a return to full implementation of the JCPOA. Russia shares a common interest in ensuring Iran never acquires a nuclear weapon,” the State Department spokesperson adds according to the news agency.
