Russian president said, “It would be a pity if the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) ceased to exist”.
"I must say that I had no special expectations since this is the first such a meaningful meeting, and, in my opinion, it was originally supposed to be a sort of a warm-up so that later on, in the course of our future contacts, we could speak more substantively," Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Russia's Channel One television following talks with US President Donald Trump in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.
"The United States would like to draw Iran's attention to its resolute policy, to missile programs, but in our view, this should not lead to destruction of the JCPOA. It would be a pity if the JCPOA ceased to exist,” Vladimir Putin stressed.
“The Russian position remains unchanged regarding the JCPOA .We believe that the JCPOA is an instrument that makes it possible to guarantee the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons in general and in the region in particular,” Putin added.
"On some issues, as you could see at the press conference, we agreed in particular on some issues of settlement in Syria. In particular in the southern zone of de escalation in the Golan Heights taking into account the interests of Israel. We earlier talked about it with our Iranian partners," the Russian president said about the Syria.
