Russia's Putin arrives in Iran

Russian President Vladimir Putin has visited the Iranian capital, Tehran, attending a trilateral summit with the leaders of Iran and Azerbaijan.

Stressing that the first trilateral summit was held in Baku in August 2016 on the initiative of Azerbaijan, President Aliyev said that this format has a wonderful future.

Putin is to hold separate talks with Rouhani and supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as Russian Federation and Iran cooperate on a range of issues including the conflict in Syria.

"We proved to the world that we are able to resolve our region's highly important issues without (any help from) extra-regional countries", he said.

Russia, Iran and Azerbaijan want to deepen high-level cooperation on global energy market platforms and expand cooperation in the oil and gas sector, a joint statement signed by the countries' presidents in Tehran on Wednesday said. Our cooperation can isolate the United States.

Tehran and Moscow are in favour of new elections in Syria, albeit with al-Assad's participation.

Today's talks will also focus on the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, which saw sanctions lifted in exchange for limits on Tehran's atomic programme and which is under pressure from US President Donald Trump.

NBA Takes New Measures to Enhance its Latest Mobile View Feature
Last season, the service garnered 26.7 million views in over 1.2 billion minutes, up by over ten percent from the last season. Additionally, the onsite camera operator will communicate via intercom with the Secaucus producer, and no one else.

Putin and the Iranian leadership are also set to find common cause in their fierce opposition to Trump's stance on the 2015 deal to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions.

"In our relations with Iran, we are absolutely resolute and will not allow anyone to interfere in the relations between the two countries and disrupt them", underlined Aliyev.

"We oppose any unilateral change in the multilateral nuclear deal", Putin told Khamenei, Iranian state TV reported.

The U.S. suspects that Iran has been seeking to build a nuclear bomb.

Another Iranian official said Trump's hawkish Iran policy had united the Islamic Republic's often feuding leadership - split into hardline conservative, pragmatist and reformist factions - in alignment with Russian Federation.

The Iranian and Russian Presidents were joined by Azerbaijani head of state Ilham Aliyev.

The deal appeared to dovetail with Putin's strategy to reassert Russian political and economic influence in the Middle East that faded after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union.
