Tehran (ISNA) - Russia and Iran will intensify work with Europe and China in coming days to counter U.S. attempts to undermine the Iran nuclear deal, Russian deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

Earlier, Russia said it will do "everything necessary" to save the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and protect its shared economic interests with Tehran.

The Russian foreign ministry website published a statement stating that Moscow is "deeply disappointed by US steps to reimpose its national sanctions against Iran," before adding, "We will do everything necessary in the interests of preserving and fully implementing the Iran nuclear deal".

The Russian deputy foreign minister also chided European companies, saying they are wrong in refusing to cooperate with Iran in the face of US pressure, Reuters reported.
