During a telephone conversation, the two leaders talked among others about recent developments concerning the Iran nuclear deal, or the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, after Washington's unilateral pullout from the deal, Xinhua quoted the Kremlin as saying.
What's more, the two presidents discussed preparations for Macron's visit to Russia on May 24-25 and coordinated the range of international and bilateral issues for their talks on the occasion, according to the statement.
They also exchanged views on the Syrian settlement, the statement said.
Iranian and Russian foreign ministers on Monday agreed that their countries will uphold the deal and called on other signatories to the deal to "defend their legitimate interest stipulated by this agreement."
The landmark agreement was signed in 2015 by Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -- Russia, the US, Britain, China and France -- plus the European Union and Germany.
