Peskov on agenda of Putin-Rouhani meeting

Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to discuss Iran’s nuclear deal and situation in the Strait of Hormuz with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at their bilateral meeting in Armenia today, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

"[The sides will discuss] tensions in the Strait of Hormuz and certainly the situation with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action," Peskov said, commenting on the talks’ agenda.

He recalled that the 60-day deadline set by Iran was expiring, prompting Tehran to take further steps to scale back its commitments under the JCPOA. "This is certainly an issue for concerns. So far, all initiatives, for example by France, have failed to produce desirable results and the situation remains tense," TASS cited the spokesman as saying.
