Japan calls on Iran to adhere to nuclear deal

TEHRAN -- Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida urged Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Tuesday to hold up his country's end of a nuclear agreement with six world powers.

     At the beginning of their talks here, Rouhani said economic relations between Iran and Japan have faltered amid Western sanctions but that he expects cooperation to expand. He extended Prime Minister Shinzo Abe an invitation to visit Iran, to which Kishida said Abe is ready to come at an appropriate time.
