Iran's foreign minister said on a visit to Moscow Monday he was seeking "assurances" from the backers of the country's nuclear deal after the United States pulled out.Russia is trying to keep the landmark 2015 accord alive in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's decision, pushing Moscow into rare cooperation with Europe. Trump's move to ditch the nuclear deal has infuriated Washington's allies in Europe as well as China and Russia.On Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington still wants to work with Europe to counter Iran's "malign behavior".The deal was negotiated between Iran and the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States -- plus Germany.
