Russian decision on Iran missiles will not hurt nuclear talks: State Department – Reuters


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. officials do not think Russia’s decision to deliver a missile system to Iran would affect the major powers’ unity in ongoing nuclear talks, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on Monday.

Russia ended a ban on delivering the anti-missile system to Iran on Monday. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has raised concerns about that decision with his Russian counterpart, Harf said.
