Russian Federation calls for 'dialogue' between Israel and Iran, says Lavrov

German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Deputy Russian foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov met his Iranian counterpart Abbas Araghchi in Tehran where the two sides "agreed to continue close coordination in this area", the ministry said in a statement.

President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. Tuesday from its participation in the landmark nuclear agreement world powers struck with Iran in 2015.

"The Russian side underscored its commitment to preserving the agreement", the statement said, emphasizing that Russia holds "interests of ensuring bilateral cooperation" with Iran.

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

President Donald Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal on Tuesday.

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. During the consultations in Tehran, the issue of maintaining the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program was discussed, as well as overcoming the consequences of United States economic sanctions on Tehran.

All of the U.S.'s negotiating partners - the U.K., France, Germany, Russia, China and the European Union - had agreed that maintaining the JCPOA was the best way to reign in Iran's program.

The top Russian diplomat, who was speaking in a joint press conference with his German counterpart Heiko Mass in Moscow, further said, "We agree to make the appropriate contacts with our German colleagues".
