Iranian, Russian military chiefs meet in Tehran

02 November, 2017, 00:25 | Author: Priscilla Morrison

"We discussed different issues in the sector of stability, fighting crime and terrorism". Putin praised cooperation with Iran as "very productive".

"No one is paying attention to the Americans' rhetoric", Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ebrahim Rahimpur said Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump refused to recertify the deal in October and has threatened to withdraw his country's support if what he calls serious flaws in the accord can not be fixed by Washington lawmakers and their allies.

The European Union and the other parties to the deal- Russia, Britain, China, France, and Germany - have all urged Trump not to pull the United States out. Our cooperation can isolate America.

Putin also met Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters.




Also, Putin hailed Iran-Russia cooperation in the war against terrorism in Syria, calling for "a suitable political process to be considered in the Arab country".

President Ilham Aliyev also for his part said while he is in Iran he feels that he is in his own home. The three of them agreed to increase cooperation in the oil and gas industry, including in production as well as oil and oil-products swaps, the statement said.

Irnia president Hassan Rouhani said during the press conference that next Iran-Russia-Azerbaijan summin will be held in Russia in 2018. Moreover, Azerbaijani and Iranian presidents discussed the military and military-technical cooperation and perspectives on this direction and regional issues.

Aliyev opened a similar rail project on Monday that links the Azeri capital, Baku, to Turkey via Georgia, offering a transport corridor to move goods between China and Europe through central Asia, in competition with existing routes through Russian Federation and Iran. As an example, Putin mentioned the North-South Transport Corridor, which "has already been tested, since a year ago, the first deliveries began from India to Iran, Russia and further on".
