Russia has called on European countries to take a clearer stance towards the nuclear deal they inked with Iran in 2015, Reuters reported.

During his meeting with his German counterpart Heiko Maas, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov expressed Russia's concerns that the United States was backing away from nuclear arms control treaties. 

The United States quit the deal between Tehran and six major world powers last year, re-imposing the sanctions it has lifted before upon the deal and Iran's promises of dropping its nuclear weapons plans.
