In a major snub to the United States, the European Union (EU) has chose to set up a new mechanism to enable legal trade with Iran without encountering USA sanctions.
Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak also said no increase was needed, but he does believe a trade war between the United States and China, and the United States' sanctions on Iran are creating new challenges.
The five remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal have agreed to establish a special payment system to allow companies to continue doing business with the regime, bypassing new sanctions imposed by the United States.
The United Kingdom, France, and Germany have signed an agreement with Russian Federation and China to circumvent US sanctions on Iran.
In a statement after a meeting of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran, the group said they were determined to develop payment mechanisms to continue trade with Iran despite scepticism by many diplomats that this will be possible.
The statement added the six countries that signed the 2015 nuclear agreement "reconfirmed their commitment to its full and effective implementation in good faith and in a constructive atmosphere".

The EU, US allies, and the global nuclear watchdog, IAEA, maintain that Iran continues to abide by the terms of the agreement.
Mogherini said the decision to establish the mechanism "has been taken" and that technical experts from European Union member states would now be convening to turn it into reality.
But he did concede that Seoul hasn't bought any Iranian oil "for three continuous months".
"There will be no involvement of commercial banks and central banks, both of whom are terrified at the prospect of U.S. retribution if they are seen to be going against USA sanctions". Haley told ABC's This Week that if Rouhani asked for a meeting "I think the president would strongly consider it".
"So the Europeans want to try and save the agreement and they're seeing this as really the last chance". At the same time all external auditors have found that Iran has been complying with the agreement.
