Kremlin disagrees with Trump's claims on Iran

The Kremlin does not regard Iran as a terrorist state and it is going to build up relations with that country, the Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"We disagree with this postulate," Peskov said in response to US President Donald Trump’s statement Iran is "terrorist state number one".

"You all know that Russia has good relations of partnership with Iran and we cooperate with that country on a number of issues. We appreciate our relations in the trading and economic sphere and we hope for their further development," TASS cited him as saying.

Peskov believes the points of contention in the stances assumed by Moscow and Washington should not hamper work to develop relations between the two countries.
