For us, it is important to understand what heritage we will leave behind to you. In this context, it is of much use to hear your questions. They show what you are thinking about.

We know from official reports that you discussed the possibility of convening a UN Security Council meeting on Iran in a telephone conversation with State Secretary Pompeo on August 16. Is the United States ready to meet Russia halfway at least on this matter and support the initiative put forward by President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin?
