Russia was a help on this. I’ll be honest with you. I was not sure given the strong differences we are having with Russia right now around Ukraine, whether this would sustain itself. Putin and the Russian government compartmentalized on this in a way that surprised me, and we would have not achieved this agreement had it not been for Russia’s willingness to stick with us and the other P5-Plus members in insisting on a strong deal.

We have a great deal of respect and love for the United States, and especially for the American people… The US is certainly a great power and the American people created this nation over several centuries, it is simply an amazing result.
