Envoy: Iran, Russia to sign important documents in Rouhani’s visit

Moscow, Feb 18, IRNA – Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Mehdi Sanaei announced Iran and Russia will sign important documents during upcoming visit of President Hassan Rouhani to that country.

“The Iranian and Russian president have met and held talks eight times over past three years and in the upcoming visit of President Rouhani to Moscow important documents will be signed,” Sanaei said.

In relevant remarks on Friday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov underlined that no third country can affect Moscow-Tehran ties as the two countries are cooperating with each other in different fields.

“My country's relations with Iran are not affected by any external influences,” Ryabkov said.

He reiterated that the relations between Tehran and Moscow do not depend on external circumstances as the two sides are cooperating with each other on many issues, including the fight against terrorism and the landmark nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed between Iran and the six world countries (the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany) in June 2015.

'Our position is that Iran is a reliable, stable partner, a near neighbor,” Ryabkov said.

The Russian deputy foreign minister said Russia cooperates with Iran on many issues on various international platforms, including conducting a productive dialogue on the subject of counter-terrorism.

He emphasized that both Tehran and Moscow would continue working on the implementation of the JCPOA.

The top Russian official’s comments came after Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano on February 14 once again confirmed that Iran is implementing the nuclear agreement.

“Implementation is very important and that requires efforts by all and we have a very robust verification tool,” the IAEA chief told reporters on the sidelines of a summit in Dubai.

“There is nothing political that will change our implementation,' he added.
