At the 12th annual Valdai Discussion Club meeting in Sochi, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed — to over 900 representatives of the international scholarly community — that Iran’s nuclear problem has been resolved–if it ever existed in the first place.
“Iran’s nuclear problem has been solved. From Iran, there is no threat and there never had been,” Mr. Putin said. “The only reason that was used by U.S. — to start building the Missile Defense Shield – disappeared. We [Russia] might have expected that a system of MDS development to be halted.”
