MOSCOW, September 1 (RIA Novosti)
Iran and Russia have common views on a large number of international issues and closer bilateral ties between them will facilitate regional and international peace and stability, Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani said on Saturday.
“The two countries share many interests and common views in international fields that can serve as a basis for constructive cooperation between Tehran and Moscow,” Larijani was cited by Press TV as saying during a meeting with Konstantin Shuvalov, the Russian presidential representative at the 16th Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), in Tehran.
The Iranian official said the Majlis (parliament) will do its best to promote Iran’s ‘amicable ties’ with Russia.
Shuvalov said Tehran has been playing an effective and constructive role in regional and global developments.
