DUBAI (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said Iran’s missile programme should be dealt with as a separate matter to its nuclear programme.

Putin was speaking in an interview with Arab broadcasters, including Saudi-owned Al Arabiya TV, ahead of his first visit to Saudi Arabia in over a decade.

“It is possible, and we should, discuss Iran’s missiles programme… but the missile programme is one thing and the nuclear program is another thing,” Putin was quoted as saying.
