MOSCOW, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - Iran’s new President Hassan Rowhani does not plan meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in August when he makes a tour of Caspian littoral nations, Iranian Ambassador in Moscow Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi told Itar-Tass Wednesday.
“No meeting of this kind is planned,” he said. “The Iranian and Russian Presidents are expect to meet in September in Bishkek /capital of Kyrgyzstan - Itar-Tass/.”
The Kremlin has not made any announcements of top-rank visits from Iran so far.
Putin’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said last Friday there are no precise dates for the Russian President’s visit to Iran.
“We’re pondering the visit but its dates haven’t been coordinated yet,” he said.
Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said earlier the heads of state of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization /SCO/ are to have a summit conference in Bishkek September 13.
The list of SCO full-fledged member-states includes China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.
Afghanistan, India, Iran, Mongolia, and Pakistan have the status of observers in the organization while Belarus, Sri Lanka and Turkey are considered to be partner-nations.
