Putin tells Iran’s Rouhani he sees a chance to end nuclear row

(Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Monday he believes there is a “real chance” to resolve the international standoff over Tehran’s nuclear program, the Kremlin said.

Putin and Rouhani spoke by telephone two days before a scheduled meeting between negotiators from Iran and six global powers seeking to ensure Tehran does not develop nuclear weapons.

The presidents also discussed the conflict in Syria and expressed support for efforts to convene an international peace conference aimed at seeking an end to the civil war in the Middle East nation, the Kremlin said in a statement.
