"We will not support what the U.S.is trying to do - to change the text of the agreement to include things, which are absolutely unacceptable for Iran", Lavrov said.

'In fact they do not want to recognize the reality of the emerging multipolar world, ' Lavrov said at the press conference where relations with the United States proved to be the dominant topic.

However, Iran has been fulfilling its part of the deal, Lavrov said on Monday.

"When conditions for a transition to dialogue were developed, in most cases we witnessed provocative actions in the form of larger-scale military activities around Pyongyang, which provoked a new round of tension", Lavrov said.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov speaks during his annual news conference, with Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova seen in the background, in Moscow, Russia January 15, 2018. The Kremlin denies the accusations.

Under the deal, Tehran has agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of worldwide sanctions against Iran.

On Iran, the Russian foreign minister chastised a White House suggestion that it could rewrite the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran brokered by former President Obama.

He also criticized the United States for expanding its military exercises around North Korea, "which provoked a new escalation of tensions", while others were working through diplomatic channels to resume talks with Pyongyang.

Pakistan has urged the United States to cooperate with Russia's Taliban engagement efforts, while India has sought to bridge the gap between USA and Russian positions on Afghanistan. It is the defense industry, the sanctions imposed on the Russian defense sector. However, according to Lavrov, these sections aim to avoid Russia's growth while he highlighted that Crimea had a legitimate referendum in March 2014, where they voted to leave Ukraine and join Russian Federation. "They will give it up, but no one will lift the sanctions against Pyongyang", he said.

"The actions of [the U.S.] administration demonstrate fear of fair competition in a number of areas, [particularly] energy, gas supplies to Europe, when instead of Russian gas, supplies of USA liquefied natural gas are imposed, which is significantly more expensive".

"When it comes to [Trump] administrations actions, there is a fear of healthy competition", he said.
