Putin criticises US withdrawal from Iranian nuclear deal

2018-06-10 12:49

Qingdao — Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticised the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at a regional summit in China.

Speaking during a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Qingdao on Sunday, Putin emphasised that the bloc members are worried about the US move. The bloc includes China, Russia along with four ex-Soviet Central Asian nations, as well as India and Pakistan.

Putin said Washington's decision to exit the agreement could "destabilise the situation" in the region.

He added that Moscow will continue to honour its obligations under the Iranian nuclear deal.

Last month, President Donald Trump pulled out of former President Barack Obama's landmark 2015 nuclear accord with Iran over the objections of European allies and other nations.
