Putin and Raisi talk about fostering relations between Russia and Iran.

Canada Global (Web News) In a phone conversation, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Iranian counterpart, President Ebrahim Raisi, discussed enhancing their countries’ political, commercial, and economic ties, according to separate statements from their governments.

The Kremlin stated that the two leaders “talked upon certain urgent bilateral problems with an emphasis on how to enhance cooperation in the political, trade, and economic domains, notably in the field of transport and logistics.”

The development of transport lines in the Eurasian region was specifically mentioned by the Iranian Presidency as something Raisi welcomed as part of “Russia’s aim to enhance economic relations with the Islamic Republic.”

Putin also expressed sorrow for the Iranian government and people following the attack on a Shia shrine in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz, which left 15 people dead and 40 more injured.

Following a meeting between Iran’s top security official Ali Shamkhani and senior Russian security official Nikolai Patrushev on Wednesday in Tehran, where they discussed the situation in Ukraine and steps to counter what they called “Western interference” in their internal affairs, Russian state media reported on the meeting.

After Ukraine accused Russia of employing Iranian-made “kamikaze” drones in recent attacks on cities and energy infrastructure, Iran has come under fire.

Iran claimed last week that it had sold Russia the unmanned aircraft “months” in advance of the commencement of the conflict in Ukraine.

Officials from Iran have repeatedly claimed that their country and Russia cooperate in “defence,” but that they haven’t sent Russia any weapons “for use in the war in Ukraine.”
