'US, Russia can find compromise after Iran deal'
Moscow, June 6: President Vladimir Putin today said that a world power agreement on proposals aimed at defusing the crisis over Iran's nuclear programme showed the United States and Russia understood each other.
''Our views do not always coincide by a long way, but we on the whole understand each other, which is the most important, and we find compromises,'' Interfax news agency quoted Putin as saying.
''The last joint steps on Iran show this,'' Putin said at a meeting with former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at his Novo-Ogaryovo residency outside Moscow.
The Kremlin leader was referring to big power proposals that offer incentives to Iran to rein in a nuclear programme the West fears will lead to an atomic bomb.
