    The Russian Foreign Ministry rejected reports on Friday that it could strike a deal on Iran with the United States in exchange for non-intervention by the West in Syria.

    The Russian Foreign Ministry rejected reports on Friday that it could strike a deal on Iran with the United States in exchange for non-intervention by the West in Syria.

    “Nothing could be further from the truth than the assertion that our country may cut a backroom deal, giving the green light to a U.S. military operation against Iran in exchange for Western non-interference in Syria’s internal affairs,” the ministry said in a written commentary posted on its website.

    “We leave that to the conscience of their authors.”
