Russia questioned on Wednesday whether it would be possible to repeat earlier work to clinch a new Iran nuclear deal, commenting on US President Donald Trump's stance on the deal.

"We know that the nuclear deal was the meticulous work of a number of countries. Is it possible to repeat that work -- that is a question," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

With a May 12 deadline looming for Trump to decide on restoring US economic sanctions on Tehran, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that he had spoken to the US president about a "new deal" through which the United States and Europe would tackle concerns about Iran beyond its nuclear program.

Peskov said the Kremlin supports keeping the current Iran nuclear deal in place.

"We do not know what is being talked about, we support the nuclear deal as it is today. We think that there are no alternatives," said Peskov.
