The Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Moscow would honor its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal as long as other countries did so and would consider any change in the nuclear deal "unacceptable".
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Moscow would also consider any change in the nuclear deal unacceptable, in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's claims about Iran, according to Interfax news agency.
This comes at a time when US President Donald Trump is considering canceling Iran's nuclear deal in 2015, no later than May 12, something Moscow opposes.
On Monday, Netanyahu made a presentation on what he said was a documented proof of Iran's nuclear weapons program, which could give Trump a new pretext for withdrawal.
Reuters quoted sources close to the White House as saying that Trump had decided "almost" to withdraw from the nuclear deal.
Tehran denies seeking nuclear weapons and accuses Israel of raising global suspicions against it.
The agreement between Iran and the six major powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States - was among the most prominent foreign policies of former US President Barack Obama, but Trump called it "one of the worst agreements ever seen."
