The Russian Foreign Ministry said that it welcomes the deal reached between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Sunday to continue “essential verification” for up to three months.

“Thanks to the thoughtful and prudent stance of the Iranian side and the competent actions of the IAEA leadership, much-needed space is created for active diplomatic efforts” to fully revive the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), she said.

The IAEA and Iran have made a “tangible” contribution to the formation of conditions for the start of “a substantive conversation” between the current participants in the Iran nuclear deal and the US, she added.
