Cooperation among independent states, strongest response to US policy of sanctions, destabilization: Iran president

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi says cooperation among independent countries is the most decisive response that can be given to the sanctions and destabilization strategy of the United States and its allies.

In a meeting with Russia’s visiting Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev in Tehran on Wednesday, Raeisi added that the improvement of regional cooperation is the best way to create peace and stability, urging Tehran and Moscow to boost their strategic and economic relations.

He said Iran and Russia are determined to improve the level of strategic relations in various fields, saying the ties are growing and have a clear prospect.

The Iranian president once again reiterated the Islamic Republic’s core policy of opposing any war, saying, “The expansion of the scope and escalation of war is a cause of concern for all countries.”

Patrushev, for his part, said Russia is working very actively to develop cooperation with Tehran in the political, commercial, energy, agricultural and transit fields.

He added that the Iran-Russia Joint Economic Commission is following up on the implementation of the agreements reached between the two countries’ presidents.

The senior Russian security official expressed hope that Tehran and Moscow would expand relations in regional circles and organizations.

He emphasized that the creation of a multipolar world would be beneficial to all countries in the world.

In a meeting with Patrushev earlier in the day, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani pointed to regional and global developments and said that “dialogue as well as regional and international cooperation” are the path to resolution of current challenges and crises.
