On June 22, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov had a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araghchi.

The sides focused on Russian-Iranian cooperation in the interests of preserving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear programme. Russia noted its commitment to the JCPOA. Both parties agreed to continue actively coordinating this matter in order to shield bilateral trade and economic cooperation from the impact of illegal unilateral and exterritorial US sanctions.

They also discussed some other matters of mutual interest.
