Putin backs Iran nuclear deal, visits seen as rejection of USA policy

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

On August 8, a trilateral summit of the heads of state of Azerbaijan, Iran and Russian Federation was held in Baku.

Before meeting with Iranian Leader, Mr. Putin held a bilateral meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Trump last month disavowed the 2015 accord to curb Iran's nuclear program that was negotiated between Tehran and the U.S., Russia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and China.

"Moscow sees no limit to development of cooperation with Tehran", he said. Our cooperation can isolate America.

The two presidents also discussed the Syria conflict, and their joint cooperation with Turkey under the Astana peace process aimed at finding a peaceful settlement to the lingering crisis. "This cooperation will restore stability in the region", Khamenei said during his meeting with Putin, according to state television and Reuters.

He said that Azerbaijan was keen to improve cooperation with Iran in different sectors, including culture, energy and transportation. On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized "unpredictable" USA behavior, citing the refusal to uphold the Iranian agreement and threats to use force to resolve the crisis on the Korean peninsula.

President Ilham Aliyev also for his part said while he is in Iran he feels that he is in his own home.

Aliyev opened a similar rail project on Monday that links the Azeri capital, Baku, to Turkey via Georgia, offering a transport corridor to move goods between China and Europe through central Asia, in competition with existing routes through Russian Federation and Iran. Putin's visit is also expected to involve discussions about Iran's cooperation with Russian Federation in the ongoing Syrian conflict. The next such summit is to be held in Russian Federation next year.
