He said it is necessary that Iranians get to know the New Russia, adding a weakness in Iran is that many people have little knowledge about Russia and the country’s capacities.
He said that’s also the case in Russia and that many Russians have no knowledge about Iran.
The Iranian ambassador to Moscow added that Russia has been trying to reassert its global role for the past two decades and it has stood up to American unilateralism.

He said Iran and Russia must stand together in the Caucasus, Afghanistan and West Asia as neither of the two countries thinks of NATO’s eastward expansion as being in its national interest.
