Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan and Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak in a meeting in Tehran underlined the necessity for the further development of mutual cooperation, specially in campaign on terrorism. Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says his country’s relations with Russia have helped in stabilizing the region.
     
During a meeting, Dehqan and Novak discussed ways to improve bilateral relations, anti-terrorism cooperation and coordination for further support for those countries that are in the forefront of fight against terrorist groups.

"The current conditions necessitate Iran and Russia to develop their cooperation in the political, economic and defense fields given the determination of their leaders," Dehqan said.

He expressed the hope that the steps being taken to bolster relations and boost cooperation between the two countries would lead to the strengthening of regional stability and security.

Novak, for his part, said the development of economic ties between Tehran and Moscow will pave the ground for the expansion of defense relations in desired ways.

In relevant remarks on Sunday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian and Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov underlined the need for the reinvigoration of international and regional efforts to put an immediate end to the crises in the Middle-East through diplomatic channels.

In a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart, Amir Abdollahian said Moscow's recent war on terrorism in Syria has been effective and constructive.

The two senior diplomats stressed adopting political solution to regional crises, and called for expansion of international bodies' efforts to fight extremist groups within the framework of the international law and the UN Charter.

Amir Abdollahian and Bogdanov also expressed their concern on the deterioration of security crisis in Yemen, continued Saudi-led military aggression, and the escalation of humanitarian plight of the Muslim nation.

They called for termination of the Saudi-lad coalition aggressions against people of Yemen, bolstering of the political process and inter-Yemeni dialog as the only way out of the crisis in the war-hit country.

The Iranian and Russian deputy foreign ministers also supported efforts of the UN special envoy for Yemen to hold the meeting of Yemeni groups in the shortest possible time.
