Iran, Russia Stress Continued Consultations on Regional Developments
(FNA)- Iranian and Russian officials in a meeting in Moscow on Monday underlined their resolve to further increase consultations on the developments in the region, specially in Syria.
"We consider these talks and their continuation as highly valuable and want deeper concentration on them," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir Abdollahian on Monday.
He also said that many solutions and much information have been exchanged during the talks between the Iranian and Russian officials on how to settle the regional crises peacefully.
Amir Abdollahian, for his part, underlined the necessity for Tehran and Moscow's continued efforts to settle the crisis in Syria and conduct a more serious fight against terrorism, and said, "The meetings and negotiations between the two countries' officials at different levels have produced good opportunity for the enhancement of cooperation and increasing efforts to create more regional convergence."
In relevant remarks in June, Amir Abdollahian underlined that there had been no change in Tehran-Moscow joint policies on supporting the Syrian government and nation.
"Iran and Russia will keep on providing their effective supports for Syria in its fight against terrorism," Amir Abdollahian told FNA.
He noted that the terrorists had not been allowed to topple Syria's legal president and change Syria into a new Libya.
The Iranian deputy foreign minister noted that China's stances in fighting terrorism and helping Syria are similar to those of Iran and Russia, and said, "Tehran, Beijing and Moscow support sustainable stability and security in the region."
