Vladimir Putin landed and warmly greeted the Iranian leader as they are expected to discuss the controversial and endangered 2015 Iran nuclear deal and regional crises such as the Syrian conflict.

During his visit, Mr Putin is also set to discuss boosting bilateral economic ties, and will take part in a three-way summit between Russia, Iran and neighbouring Azerbaijan, state TV said.

One Tehran official said: “This is a very important visit. It shows the determination of Tehran and Moscow to deepen their strategic alliance which will shape the future of the Middle East.

“Both Russia and Iran are under American pressure. Tehran has no other choice but to rely on Moscow to ease the U.S. pressure.”

President Trump broke ranks with other major powers last month by refusing to formally certify Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal, meaning most sanctions on Iran were lifted in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear work.

Donald Trump branded Iranian leaders “great negotiators” who “negotiated a great deal for themselves, but a horrible deal for the US”.

The US President has been critical of the agreement which was completed by Barack Obama and world powers including Britain, Russia, France, Germany and China.

Iran claimed that the move from Mr Trump was an insult to Tehran and to the United Nations.

The speaker for the Islamic Consultative Assembly, Ali Larijani, said: “It seems that Mr Trump not only does not adhere to international agreements, but does not feel respect for the UN and demonstrates to all countries that the US government will not adhere to any obligations.

“Iran openly announced that the nuclear weapons have no place in our military doctrine. It seems that Mr Trump because of his hostility with Mr Obama would like to destroy the agreement because of internal issues in his own country.”

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said: “The American president’s foolish remarks against our people show the depth of America’s hostility towards the entire Iranian nation,” Iran’s top authority Khamenei told a group of students.

“America is the number one enemy of our nation.”
