Russian Federation will remain a party to the worldwide agreement on Iran's nuclear program.

He further said to sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating USA nuclear sanctions on Iran.

Russia's deputy foreign minister says Moscow and Tehran will continue to cooperate on the Iran nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), even after US President Donald Trump unilaterally chose to pull his country out of the landmark and hard-fought accord.

To that end, Tehran could have been required to commence talks about its ballistic missile program as a separate deal or in conjunction with the new talks to modify the current deal.

Netanyahu flew to Moscow on Wednesday to meet Putin, hours after U.S. President Donald Trump quit the Iranian nuclear deal and after Syria accused Israel of carrying out a fresh missile strike on an army base near Damascus.

"From this moment, the JCPOA is between Iran and five countries".

"Iran does not want new tensions in the region", he said. "The Europeans should not have to pay for the withdrawal of an agreement by the United States, to which they had themselves contributed", he said. "We expect Russia's understanding and support when it comes to our vital interests".
