Putin arrives in Iran on visit

Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the worldwide community to rally in support of the Iranian nuclear accord after talks with leaders of the Islamic Republic, following President Donald Trump's move away from the multinational pact.

"Active cooperation has been maintained within the Gas Exporting Countries Forum", where Russian Federation and Iran are the organization's members, while Azerbaijan is an observer.

Presidents of Iran and Russian Federation called for continuing commitment to the 2015 global nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers. Our cooperation can isolate the United States.

Moscow is now trying to build on that success with a new diplomatic initiative, including a congress of Syria's rival parties it plans in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on November 18, though a major opposition bloc has refused to take part.

Irnia president Hassan Rouhani said during the press conference that next Iran-Russia-Azerbaijan summin will be held in Russia in 2018. Putin said Russian Federation and Iran as well as Turkey have achieved progress in their cease-fire efforts in the Middle East state.

Tehran signed the deal with six countries including Russian Federation and the United States, but Trump last month refused to certify the agreement, drawing criticism from Moscow which slammed the USA president's "aggressive and threatening rhetoric" against Iran. Trump has threatened to pull out of the nuclear deal, unless its alleged flaws, including what he calls its failure to contain Iran's missile and regional activities, are removed. These were lifted under the 2015 accord in return for Tehran curbing nuclear activity of potential use in developing an atomic bomb. "This cooperation will restore stability in the region", Khamenei said during a meeting with Putin, state TV added.

"The outcome of this cooperation has showed that Tehran and Moscow can achieve common goals on challenging fronts", he added. The host nation believes this will show that United States approval is not needed for regional cooperation.

During Putin's visit, Russian oil producer Rosneft and the National Iranian Oil Company agreed an outline deal to work on a number of "strategic" projects in Iran together worth up to $30 billion.
