Two leaders agree to work work together on reducing regional tensions, especially in Syria
During a telephone call with Putin, Obama acknowledged Russia’s significant role in finalizing the agreement, which the American president described as “the culmination of nearly 20 months of intense negotiations.”
The leaders affirmed that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that was signed Tuesday in Vienna, represents a “historic solution” for preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.
Obama and Putin also committed to remain in close coordination as the deal is put into place, agreeing to work together on reducing regional tensions, especially in Syria.
The official website of the Kremlin posted a message Tuesday that welcomed the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 world powers group.
“We are certain that the world heaved a sigh of relief today,” Putin said.
