Russian and Iranian defense ministers, Sergei Shoigu and Hossein Dehghan, met within the 3rd Moscow International Security Conference on Friday.
Dehghan said the Iranian leadership always thought about the causes of “colour revolutions” when it analysed the situation.
The United States often pursues its interests in conducting “colour revolutions”, he said.
“The US always comes against the countries that seek to pursue an independent policy,” Dehghan said.
“We’re categorically against such approach. We’ll build our cooperation on the basis of such principle. I have a keen interest in reaching a new level in cooperation between the two countries,” he said.
Dehghan also thanked Shoigu for accepting the invitation to visit Iran. “This is an important message to Americans,” he said.
Shoigu said he was grateful to his Iranian counterpart for taking part in the conference.
“Our meeting creates conditions for developing mutual relations between the defence ministries,” he said.
