Afghan Voice Agency(AVA) , 28 Jan 2020 13:25

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says bilateral relations between Iran and Russia are rapidly advancing despite the will and intention of the United States.

Rouhani made the remark in a meeting with the visiting chairman of Russia’s State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin in Tehran on Monday.
“I stand assured that in spite of Washington’s pressures on the region and Iran in particular, the two countries will expand their relations more than ever before regardless of the White House’s will and intention,” Rouhani said.
Underlining that Iran is by no way interested in the spread of tensions across the region, Rouhani said, “Regional stability is of significance to Iran and Russia, and we are ready, as in the past, to further cooperation and deliberation between the two countries.”
The Iranian president also noted that, “Trilateral relations between Iran, Russia and China as well as joint maritime drills in the Sea of Oman indicate that the trio are bent on developing closer ties with each other.”
