Putin says world can breathe a sigh of relief after Iran deal

MOSCOW, July 14 (Reuters) - Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that the six powers that reached the Iranian nuclear deal made a firm choice in favour of stability and cooperation.

“The world can now breathe a sigh of relief,” Putin said in a statement on the Kremlin website.

“Despite attempts to justify scenarios based on force, the negotiators have made a firm choice in favour of stability and cooperation.”

Putin added that the deal will help Russian-Iranian civilian nuclear cooperation and will contribute to combating terrorism in the Middle East. (Reporting by Katya Golubkova, Maria Kiselyova and Vladimir Soldtakin; Writing by Lidia Kelly, editing by Jason Bush)
