MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday he was planning to pay an official visit to Iran, but the timeframe was not yet clear.
“We will discuss it at the level of the foreign ministries. I have an invitation from the Iranian head of state and I will use this opportunity with pleasure,” the Russian president said at an annual ‘grand’ news conference. He also said he had earlier been to Tehran within the framework of a meeting of Caspian region countries’ leaders.
In reply to the query by an Iranian journalist about the possibility for the signing of a new large-scale treaty between Russia and Iran, Putin said he thought positively about that on the whole. “We must think about its (treaty’s) contents,” the president added.
