Iran's President Ebrahim Raisi may visit Russia at the beginning of the next year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

Iran PressEurope: "We spoke about the Iranian (nuclear) problem. I hope that my invitation will be accepted by the president of Iran and that he will be able to visit Russia at the beginning of next year," Putin told a press conference after his meeting with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis in Sochi.

After meeting with Russian officials in Moscow on Tuesday, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister and Iran's chief negotiator in the Vienna talks Ali Bagheri-Kani stated that Iran-Russia relations are excellent and extend in various fields.

Bagheri-Kani added that in the new round of Vienna talks, Iran has consulted with Russia and China in various ways.

In an interview with the Russian Kommersant newspaper, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian stated that the situation with Iran's nuclear program was created because "the United States has not given up any attempt to destroy the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)."

Iran seeks a good agreement on the JCPOA and emphasizes that both parties must fulfill all their JCPOA commitments. On this basis, Iran has not entered new issues in the seventh round of talks, but the discussion focuses on continuing the sixth round of negotiations. Respecting the previous negotiations, Iran has based the text of its new draft on the draft of the last round of talks.
