Iran's new president is due to address the UN General Assembly today. Statements he made in recent weeks signal he wants to pursue better relations with the West and is open to discussing Iran's nuclear program.
The Russian president has strongly backed Iran and its nuclear deal with world powers during a visit to Tehran. After meeting with Iranian leaders, Putin said he opposed any unilateral change to the multilateral accord.
Ahead of a visit to Seoul, Jens Stoltenberg has urged UN members to implement sanctions against North Korea. Meanwhile, China and South Korea are to work together to persuade the North to give up its nuclear program.
US President Trump urged the world to pressure Iran to "end its pursuit of death and destruction." He said Iran had committed multiple violations of the accord and called for sanctions on the Iran's Revolutionary Guard.
The EU's top diplomat says the US can't terminate the Iran nuclear agreement because it's not a "bilateral deal." European leaders acknowledge Iran poses many problems, but insist they should be handled separately.
