MOSCOW - Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama discussed by telephone on Wednesday the nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers and agreed it was in the interests of the world as a whole, the Kremlin said.

The Kremlin said the telephone conversation took place on the initiative of the United States and that the two sides stressed the role of Russian-US dialogue in ensuring world security and stability.

The nuclear deal signed earlier this week in Vienna would help foster nuclear non-proliferation and ease tensions in the Middle East, the Kremlin said in a statement.

Russia and the United States expressed a joint willingness to work together to ensure the Vienna agreements on Iran's disputed nuclear program would be upheld, the statement added.
