McFaul has predicted a 'clash' between Russia and the US over Iran

After the recent election of Donald Trump as the next US president, Moscow and Washington may have disagreements on the Iranian nuclear program, according to former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

“The first clash will be over Iran as Trump has promised that he will eliminate the six-party agreement,” he said in an interview with the Dozhd TV channel.

McFaul also suggested that Moscow may soon become disappointed with the newly elected American president. “I do not rule out that this may happen,” the diplomat said.

With regard to the situation in Ukraine, he said that it is unlikely that Trump’s election will present a solution to this problem. According to McFaul, Russia's annexation of the Crimea will not be recognized during the term of the new US president.
