Iranian, Russian FMs stress expansion of cooperation

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov stressed the development of cooperation in various bilateral and regional areas.

“One of the priority issues on the agenda of today’s talks will be the need for full-scale resumption of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program without any exemptions or additions. We would like to discuss today how this process can be accelerated,” Lavrov said in his opening remarks at negotiations with his Iranian counterpart.

He stressed that despite the pandemic, Moscow and Tehran continued intensive political dialogue at all levels, including that at the level of presidents.

Lavrov pointed out that “Iran’s accession to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in the capacity of a full-fledged member will become a new track for cooperation.”

“Your visit to Russia is very timely. I am certain that we will work fruitfully together,” Lavrov told his Iranian counterpart.
