U.S. warns Russia over any oil-for-goods deal with Iran
WASHINGTON, April 10
WASHINGTON, April 10 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told his Russian counterpart on Thursday that any oil-for-goods deal Moscow might strike with Iran could run afoul of U.S. sanctions.
"Secretary Lew reiterated our serious concerns regarding reports of a possible deal between Russia and Iran involving oil-for-goods," a Treasury spokesperson said in a statement after Lew met with Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov.
"He made clear that such a deal ... could trigger sanctions against any entity or individual involved in any related transactions," the spokesperson said. (Reporting by Timothy Ahmann; Editing by James Dalgleish)
