Putin: All countries must respect Iran’s interests
The Russian President Vladimir Putin has said all countries should respect Iran's interests and that Moscow will try its best "to create conditions for a positive trend to emerge."
He added: "A huge power like Iran, which has been there for centuries, will definitely have its own interests that need to be respected."
Putin further noted: "Understanding nuances and issues requires negotiations. Without negotiation, it is not possible to resolve any issues."
"This is why I assume that I can share the concerns of the [United] Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia but only the two countries involved can resolve bilateral issues," he declared.
"As for Russia, we will do our best to create conditions for a positive trend to emerge," Putin noted, pointing out that Moscow insists on maintaining good relations both with Iran and Arab countries.
