According to the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed bilateral cooperation and the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday with his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi.
During a phone call, Putin offered condolences for a train wreck in eastern Iran that killed 17 people and left many injured.
A mutual stance to develop and strengthen ties to implement joint projects in the trade and the economy, the Russian president expressed.
Regarding the restoration of the Iran nuclear deal, the two leaders also noted the necessity of achieving final agreements.
According to a statement, “The issues of ensuring regional stability and security were also touched upon. In particular, the commitment to further work within the framework of the Astana process to promote the Syrian settlement was confirmed.”
Amid key disagreements between Tehran and Washington, talks between Iran and world powers in Vienna to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal have been stalled.
The US walked out of the deal in May 2018 and reinstated sanctions on Iran. In response, Tehran ramped up its uranium enrichment process from 3.65 percent stipulated in the deal, to 60 percent.
