Russian Federation and Iran will continue 'close coordination' on nuclear deal - Moscow

Earlier, Russia expressed "deep disappointment at the decision by trump" on the U.S. withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal.

Sergei Ryabkov made the comment during a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Abbas Araqchi in the Iranian capital Tehran on Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, adding that the two sides "agreed to continue close coordination in this area".

Both the countries confirmed adherence to the agreement, the statement added.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation did not support the decision of the President of the United States.

Tuesday, may 8, the President of the United States Donald trump announced his decision not to sign the decree on the continuation of the freezing of sanctions against Iran.

Germany's foreign minister is vowing to work to preserve the Iran nuclear deal and prevent an "uncontrolled escalation" of tensions in the Middle East.

The 2015 nuclear agreement placed unprecedented restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from worldwide sanctions, but Trump has consistently railed against it since he began his bid for America's highest office, repeatedly claiming it is the "worst deal" he has ever seen.

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.
