TEHERAN – Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Tehran, Iran, on Friday (24/6/2022). Russia and Iran discussed the prospect of strengthening their partnership amid Western sanctions against the two countries.

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.
