Russia TV: Putin to host Iran’s Raisi within days

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host his Iranian counterpart Ebrahim Raisi in Moscow next week, state television channel Rossiya-1 reported on Sunday.

Rossiya-1 did not disclose when precisely the meeting between the two leaders would take place, nor the issues they would discuss.

This will be the first official meeting between the two since Raisi was sworn in as president of Iran in August 2021.

On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Raisi’s upcoming visit to Moscow will be very important.

“The visit, in short, is very important. It’s time to resume contacts at the highest level, which are traditionally close and regular among us and which also fell victim to the coronavirus infection,” Lavrov stated.

“The significance (of the visit), first of all, is the need to take an inventory of our entire agenda taking into account changes in the leadership of Iran,” he added.
