Russian Federation slams USA decision to withdraw from Iran deal

The Russian Foreign Ministry released a statement Thursday following a meeting between diplomatic leaders between Russia and Iran stating they will "continue closely coordinating their efforts" with Iran on the JCPOA.

"The Russian side highlighted its commitment to preserving the agreement", the statement further said.

A day after Trump's controversial decision, which triggered worldwide condemnations, Russian President Vladimir Putin voiced his "deep concern" over his American counterpart's withdrawal from the accord.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday expressed his "deep concern" over Donald Trump's withdrawal from the 2015 deal.

In those four innings, the short-haired ace relented no runs on just two hits while striking out six batters. He spent much of Wednesday at the hospital for a series of tests that "didn't find anything", Snitker said.

Trump complained that the deal, the signature foreign policy achievement of his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, did not address Iran's ballistic missile programme, its nuclear activities beyond 2025 or its role in conflicts in Yemen and Syria. This was stated by Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Expert.

Earlier in the day Ryabkov said Russia's "European partners" should also work to keep the deal together, in comments reported by news agencies.

At a joint press conference with his German counterpart Heiko Maas, Lavrov said it's important that all other signatories to the agreement promptly assess the situation, hold necessary consultations, and elaborate steps that could help preserve it.
