MOSCOW: Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Moscow would honour its commitments on the Iran nuclear deal for as long as other countries did, the Interfax news agency reported.

Moscow has repeatedly said it wants the deal left intact.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday Russia would deem any changes to the deal to be unacceptable too.
