Trump’s national security advisor asked Russia to defend anti Iran actions of the US government.

Iran Press/America: White House national security advisor ‘John Bolton’ reiterated that the rebuke of an American organization aligned with opponents of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal is unacceptable.

John Bolton tweeted on Sunday: “If President Putin is serious about stabilizing the Middle East, confronting terrorism & preventing a nuclear arms race in the region, he should stand with UANI & against Iran,” Iran Press reported.

Bolton came to the defence of United Against Nuclear Iran one day after a senior Russian diplomat accused the nonprofit group of trying to “intimidate Russian business” interests that seek to invest in Iran.

“Any attempts to intimidate Russian business are a continuation of the indecent acts by the current U.S. administration,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Friday.

"The Russian business must be guided by the rules of national laws, not by the statements and rules by the notorious organizations of political nature from abroad,” she added.

Zakharova cited a series of letters by Mark Wallace, the UANI chief executive and a former ambassador with the U.S. mission to the United Nations, as examples of such U.S. overreach in abandoning the 2015 nuclear deal.

Iran's nuclear deal with the G5+1 group of countries including Britain, France, Russia, China, the United States and Germany was implemented in January 2016, but the United States repeatedly showed its unwillingness to implement the multilateral accord. It eventually withdrew from the JCPOA on 8 May 2018, leveling repeated bogus accusations against Iran and reinstating anti-Iran sanctions.
