Moscow, August 5: It was expected that Russia would take some tough steps to face US Sanction. The new US Sanction also included Iran and North Korea. Hence two countries now have agreed to strengthen the military, technical and technological cooperation. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Rogozin is scheduled to discuss arms supply with Iranian Defense Minister. The Russian leader is set to visit Tehran.
Russian-Italian Chamber of Commerce is also scared of EU Economic interests. "The main goal of the sanctions is to turn Russian and European companies against each other and to deprive Europe of a choice in the energy sector and to force it to import US gas. This gas is more expensive than the Russian one but it is also more difficult to be extracted. In order to use the US gas it is necessary to construct big gas liquefaction plants in the United States, deliver gas to Europe and then utilize it in power grids," President of the Russian-Italian Chamber of Commerce Rosario Alessandrello told Sputnik.
