The Russian State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs held a joint meeting with the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission on Tuesday in Moscow. During the meeting, Sergei Kislyak, the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, said that «Iran, of course, is strengthening its position in the region.» Iran «is beginning to... Еще cooperate with the international community on the nuclear issue,» he added. Kislyak went on to say: «Our American colleagues have taken a very sharp course against Iran. The agreements on the implementation of Iran's nuclear programme are now called into question. These agreements are multilateral and Russia has played an important role in them. We believe it is a very important component of regional and global security.» US President Donald Trump made the decision to renege on the Iranian-US JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) with Iran on October 13, which was agreed under the Obama administration in 2015. The deal has now been referred to Congress for further deliberation.
