Iran, Russia stress nuclear cooperation

Stressing that the peaceful nuclear cooperation between the two countries will continue, Jalali and Spassky stressed that the cooperation between the two countries vis-a-vis the irresponsible pressures of the US concerning the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The JCPOA was signed between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (Russia, China, France, the UK and the US) plus Germany.
