Russia hopes Iran won't withdraw from nuclear deal

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday he hoped that Iran would not quit the nuclear agreement it reached in 2015 with world powers, Reuters reported.

His comments came a day after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned that Iran would abandon the deal "within hours" if the United States imposed any more new sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
