Russia's Putin Praises Iran Nuclear Deal

MOSCOW, November 24 (RIA Novosti) – Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday praised a last-minute agreement between Iran and the six international negotiators on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

“The agreement is a balanced list of measures and it will certainly have a positive influence on the development of the international situation, especially in the Middle Eastern region,” Putin said in a statement as quoted by the Kremlin.

Iran and the P5+1 group (permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) clinched the deal Sunday morning following four days of talks, apparently resolving the decade-long dispute over the issue.

A formal signing ceremony was held in the UN building in Geneva on Sunday involving representatives from China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and United States, led by the coordinator for the group, European Commission foreign relations head Catherine Ashton.

The core of the deal is a freeze on Iran’s nuclear program, in particular work on enrichment facilities, in exchange for a relaxation of the economic sanctions that have crippled the Iranian economy.

In his statement, Putin called the deal “a breakthrough,” adding however that it was only the first step on a long road.

“Jointly with partners, we are ready to continue patiently seeking a mutually acceptable, wider comprehensive solution to ensure Iran’s inalienable right to the development of a peaceful nuclear program under IAEA control and security of all Middle Eastern countries, including Israel,” he said.

Western countries suspect Iran of using its nuclear program to develop atomic weapons capability, a claim Iran has consistently denied. Tehran claims it needs atomic technology for producing electricity, although it has some of the world's largest reserves of oil and gas.

Nothing wrong with peace and Putin has no desire for war.

You can bet your booties that Putin was the leader in this. He has much more influence in the region than any of the other parties.

Putin thinks he can control the Iranians, he’s wrong.

China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and United States, led by the coordinator for the group, European Commission foreign relations head Catherine Ashton.

Israel has been isolated. On this topic, Israel's only ally is Saudi Arabia.

But what a price the U.S. must have paid for this 'deal'! The billions announced are only the tip of the iceberg. Russia alone must have been granted huge concessions by Obama, all at the expense of the American and Israeli people.

Israel must know the truth. It is time for Bibi to call out these hypocrites.

That’s not what it’s about. Our intel stinks compared to Russia and Israel. And it’s not about control..it’s the insiders information.

If the Israelis are going to strike now would be the ideal time. Like the old saw goes, Strike while the iron is hot.

Were the Russians ever worried about the Iranians attacking them?

yes.
Russia is a big backer of Iran..
actually, Russia is Iran’s MAIN backer...

Russia figures it can always nuke Iran into the stone age anytime it wishes, and of course Russia has nukes trained on Iran to do just that,

and the Iranian IslamoNazis know it.

So, Russia is not too afraid of Iran. And Russia is very happy to see Iran get nukes so it can take over the Gulf oil fields (taking access to that oil away from the West)

I think Russia needs for oil to satisfy China in the coming years.

I am sure Putin is looking out for Russia, not Iran. Obama is looking out for Iran.
