Russia says US measure threatens Iran nuclear deal

MOSCOW - Echoing Iran, Russia said on Friday that a new US measure targeting companies and individuals for supporting Tehran's nuclear program violated the spirit of a deal reached with major powers last month and could hinder its implementation.

"Widening American 'blacklists' could seriously complicate the fulfillment of othe Geneva agreement, which proposes easing the sanctions regime," Zakharova said in a statement.
