Rouhani and Putin Confirm Support To Iran Deal

Russia's Putin arrives in Iran

A trilateral meeting of the Azerbaijani, Russian and Iranian presidents will be held in Tehran today.

Stressing that the first trilateral summit was held in Baku in August 2016 on the initiative of Azerbaijan, President Aliyev said that this format has a wonderful future. "The failure of US -backed terrorists in Syria can not be denied but Americans continue their plots", Khamenei told Putin, according to Iranian state television.

During the negotiations, the presidents of Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan are expected to exchange their views on cooperation in the political, economic and social fields. Our cooperation can isolate America.

US President Donald Trump has refused to confirm whether his government will comply with the agreement and has threatened a harder line on Iran, which the US suspects has been seeking to build a nuclear bomb.

The Russian commander, for his part, voiced satisfaction over the current level of defense and military cooperation between Iran and Russia. Trump has also not ruled out an outright cancellation of the deal.

Pragmatist Iranian President Hassan Rouhani echoed Khamenei, saying Iran and Russian Federation together could tackle "regional terrorism" - an allusion to Sunni Muslim armed groups hostile to Iran, Assad and many other Arab states.

The US leader's decision not to certify the deal has been opposed by the other worldwide powers that signed off on it as they insist the agreement is working.

"During the exchange of views on pressing worldwide and regional issues, special attention will be paid to coordination of joint efforts to combat terrorism and extremism, drug trafficking and transnational crime", the press service said.

"This is a very important visit [by Putin]".

Another Iranian official said Trump's hawkish Iran policy had united the Islamic Republic's often feuding leadership - split into hardline conservative, pragmatist and reformist factions - in alignment with Russian Federation.

Putin was in Tehran to take part in the second three-way summit with Rouhani and Azeri President Ilham Aliyev.
