The Iranian president Hassan Rouhani and the Foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov met in Tehran on Wednesday.
Pointing to mutual measures following Rouhani and Vladimir Putin’s meeting in Bishkek, the Iranian president said "Our goal is to arrive at close, strategic relations with Russia. Like Russia, Iran is willing to reach a long-term agreement which will cover bilateral, regional, and international cooperation.”
Also providing comments on the Iran-Six Majors agreement made in Geneva, the Iranian president said "As for the Geneva nuclear talks, Iran has always stressed two points. The first point is not to stand discrimination and to enjoy the rights stated in the NPT in full, especially the right to enriching uranium inside Iran’s soil. The second point is stressing the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear activities and the fact that they will remain so.”
