US President Donald Trump refused to recertify the deal in October and has threatened to withdraw his country's support if what he calls serious flaws in the accord can not be fixed by Washington lawmakers and their allies. Our cooperation can isolate America.
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.
Moscow has stood by Tehran as well while Trump has refused to re-certify the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers including Russian Federation.
Russian Federation is one of the signatories to the landmark nuclear accord under which Tehran agreed to curb its atomic program in exchange for sanctions relief. "It shows the determination of Tehran and Moscow to deepen their strategic alliance., which will shape the future of the Middle East", an Iranian official told Reuters on condition of anonymity. "This cooperation will restore stability in the region", Khamenei said during his meeting with Putin, according to state television. "Tehran has no other choice but to rely on Moscow to ease the US pressure", said the official.
