Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) said the level of cooperation between Iran and Russia and their common positions indicate that the negative measures of the Zionist regime will have no effect on the bilateral ties between them.

Iran press / Iran news:  Secretary of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani made the remark in a meeting with Russian President's special envoy to Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, who is visiting Iran to present a report on the quadruple talks in Istanbul over Syria between France, Germany, Turkey, and Russia which was held in Istanbul on October 27, Mehr news agency reported.

Pointing to three strategic and unchangeable principles which form the basis for Iran-Russia defensive, security and political cooperation over the Syrian crisis, Shamkhani added, "supporting the legitimate government of Syria, collaboration with it to fight terrorism, preserving Syria's territorial integrity and providing political mechanisms for Syrian people to determine their future are among the goals upon which all political and field successes have been achieved."

The Russian envoy, for his part, described his visit to Tehran upon Putin’s order for a twin mission; first, to give a report on the quadruple talks in Istanbul over Syria between France, Germany, Turkey, and Russia which was held in Istanbul on October 27; second, to voice Moscow’s unequivocal support for Iran against the fresh round of US sanctions.

He hailed Iran’s constructive role in contributing to the political settlement of crisis in Syria, and said Russia is resolved to sustain political and security cooperation with Iran until full restoration of peace and security in Syria.

The visiting envoy also called for concreted action by the international community to stand against US unilateralism, and denounced the use of economic and trade options for imposing a country’s political will on others.
