ST.PETERSBURG, June 16 /TASS/. Russian-Iranian trade relations do not match the level of political dialogue between the two countries and should be improved, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanai said in his speech at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Thursday.
"We develop serious relations at all levels and in all spheres. The Russian-Iranian relations have strategic nature," the Iranian diplomat said.
The ambassador believes that trade relations between the two countries have been lagging behind the high level of political dialogue. "We need to work hard to upgrade our trade relations," Mehdi Sanai emphasized.
According to him, conditions for that have already been created and the only thing left is to start the process.
