MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Russia and Iran maintain practical cooperation in the struggle against terrorism, while the United States prefers to employ double standards, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said at a meeting with Federation Council’s speaker Ilyas Umakhanov.
The Iranian diplomat said that earlier in the day he had held a meeting with Russia’s special Middle East and Africa envoy, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.
"The issues on the agenda included Egypt, Libya and Palestine, the situation in Syria and Iraq and the Islamic state," the diplomat said. "Both sides noted the need for a political settlement of the situations in Bahrain and Yemen."
"We are glad that joint efforts by Iran and Russia have prevented Syria from being turned into another Libya or Somalia," Amir-Abdollahian said. "While the Americans keep talking about their struggle with the Islamic State, Russia and Iran have continued to take practical steps to fight against this evil."
The Iranian diplomat criticized the United States for its double-handed approach to the struggle against terrorism.
