Tough questions about the near-frozen negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal were also raised.
“Moscow and Tehran also agreed to blame the United States for the current turbulence and for all regional conflicts from Ukraine to the Middle East,” the Kommersant report said.
Tehran, which has been under sanctions for more than 40 years, understands a new reality to which its Russian partners have had to adapt more than anywhere else.
The Iranian foreign minister promised during a press conference following his talks with Lavrov that Russia and Iran would take joint action to neutralize Western sanctions.
The countries discussed the prospects of developing economic cooperation between Moscow and Tehran, as well as regional partnerships.
For example, within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union, a free trade agreement is being worked out.
