MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi met on Friday to discuss Russian-Iranian relations as well as key international problems, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports. “The sides considered the state of Russian-Iranian political dialogue as well as trade and economic relations. They also discussed urgent international and regional problems,” the Russian Foreign Ministry went on to say.
“Both sides expressed their assuredness that cooperation between the two countries would continue developing dynamically,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
A regular full-format round of talks between Iran and a group of six nations is scheduled to take place in Geneva on October 15-16. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says, the statements coming from Iran’s new leadership gives ground to hope that this meeting will produce positive shifts on Iran’s “nuclear dossier”.
