Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the capacity for expansion of Iran and Russia’s economic cooperation is far beyond the current level.
On a Wednesday meeting with the Russian President Vladimir Putin in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei welcomed President Putin’s proposal to expand cooperation in all fields stressing that it is needed to take advantage of the useful experience of recent years in regional issues and bilateral relations to consolidate and develop ties.
“In the field of transportation, especially Chabahar to Saint Petersburg path, and other economic areas, we can have closer cooperation,” said Iran’s Leader.
The leader of the Islamic Revolution also called for cooperation to counter US sanctions against Iran and Russia saying that “without paying heed to the negative propaganda of the enemies to undermine the relations between countries, we can counter US sanctions by methods like eliminating the dollar and replacing the national currency in bilateral or multilateral economic transactions.”
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei also referred to the experience of fruitful cooperation between Iran and Russia in Syria saying that it proved the two countries can meet common goals in difficult situations.
Iran’s Leader said the defeat of US coalition that was supporting terrorists in Syria is an undeniable reality, but they are still busy with conspiring and hatching a new plot.
“Therefore, the complete resolution of the Syrian problem requires sustained close cooperation,” noted Ayatollah Khamenei.
The leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed that the joint resistance of Iran and Russia against Takfiri terrorists, which are supported by some foreign countries, has had important results.
“The good combination of Tehran and Moscow’s resistance against the sedition and corruption of the terrorists in Syria is very significant, and has turned Russia into an influential country in the West Asian region,” underlined the Iranian Leader.
