Russian and Iran emphatically restated their support on Tuesday for the JCPOA - the 2015 nuclear deal reached between the Tehran regime and six world powers - following a lengthy phone call between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.

During a press conference in Tehran on February 6, broadcast by state-run IRINN TV, Rouhani said the operation will bear no fruit.

He said even the global community has felt that the U.S.in untrustworthy, adding that given Washington's increased hostile approach towards Iran, there is no place for talks with the country.

"The presidents praised the effective cooperation between Russia, Iran and Turkey within the Astana format and expressed readiness to continue working to further improve this format and to add new concrete issues to its agenda", a Kremlin statement said.

Zarif said, "One of the problems that the Trump administration has with the JCPOA is that [Barack] Obama's administration negotiated [with Iran on the nuclear issue], and if Mrs. Clinton had come [to power], she wouldn't have this problem with the JCPOA". "They are defensive and are not created to carry weapons of mass destruction, since we don't have any", he said.

Zarif added, "The JCPOA, as an worldwide document, has conditions that [have made] Trump's entourage tell him that if he tears up the JCPOA, the United States will be isolated".

"It was negotiated over 30 months before it was signed. It is meaningless to say it can be renegotiated with the United States, the Europeans or anyone else".

Referring to US President Donald Trump's moves against the landmark accord, the Iranian foreign minister said, "Before becoming the Republican Party's candidate, Trump gave a speech and emphasized that if he were to become president, his priority would be tearing up the JCPOA".

"If the Americans had used the occasion created by the nuclear deal correctly, there could have been an opportunity for negotiations on other questions, but the Americans destroyed this opportunity", Rouhani said.

On the war in Syria, Putin said Russian Federation, like Iran, believes that the Syrian people alone should shape the future of their country, stressing that Moscow disagrees with any foreign decision for the Syrian people.

On Jan. 20, the Turkish Armed Forces, together with the Free Syrian Army, launched the Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria.
