Press Conference by Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia (Russian Federation) and President of the Security Council in October 2020 on the programme of work of the Security Council in October.

Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya today (01 Oct) told reporters that activating the snapback mechanism on Iran sanctions in the Security Council is "American wishful thinking," and "the US themselves understand it."

Speaking to reporters at UN Headquarters in New York, Nebenzya said, "we live in a situation of no snapback, of the full implementation of resolution 2231," added that the United States "simply use that situation in order to go with their own unilateral sanctions to impose on Iran to continue their policy of maximum pressure on that country."

In August, the US requested that the Security Council reimpose sanctions on Iran (snapback), that had been lifted under resolution 2231.

On the poisoning of Russian politician Alexei Navalny, the Russian Ambassador said "even allegation something like that, which comes not just from Nabalny, but is somehow inherently in many statements that we hear on that issue is insulting it. I mean, that is immoral even to suggest this. Let alone a simple question, why Russia or the Russian authorities would need that?"

On the Panel of Expert's report alleging Russian military activities in Libya, Nebenzya said, "there are no Russian military in Libya. Whilst we know, and we said that in the Council in the open. We know that the countries that accuse us of the military presence, have their own military presence in Libya. Not just the private military companies, but the military-military. We know it exactly, we know the numbers, we know where they are, we know what they are doing, but we are not in the habit of putting in jeopardy other military personnel."

On the Minsk Group efforts negotiate a resolution to the dispute over Nagorno-Karabakh, he said, "the Minsk Group is a means to facilitate it. The only established format that is to have the parties come to a settlement. And the Minsk Group is ready to facilitate, but one important condition for the success of the Minsk Group facilitation is the political will of the parties themselves."

The Minsk Group was set up in 1992 by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). It is co-chaired by the US, Russia and France.
