Iran's Shamkhani: Zionist plots can not chill Iran-Russia cooperation
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.
He described the very good coordination between Iran, Russia and Syria as the main cause for the Syrian Army's field successes and the collapse of its enemies and opponents, adding "Iran and Russia will continue to strengthen the Syrian armed forces in the fight against terrorism."
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.
Second round of US sanctions removed under the 2015 nuclear deal, targeting the Iranian oil and financial sectors, reimposed on Monday.
The unilateral measures that will hit oil exports, shipping and banks, are the most concrete result yet of US President Donald Trump’s controversial decision in May to abandon the multi-nation nuclear deal with Tehran.
