Iranian deal will not have a chance if Washington insists on extending the arms embargo, TASS reported referring to Iranian Ambassador to Russia Kazem Jalali.

His remarks came in an interview with Russia 24 TV channel.

According to the envoy, the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 provides that sanctions against Iran are lifted in October, but the US announced they would not comply with this resolution.
