Putin to meet Iran's Rouhani in Moscow

Iranian oil minister says global oil cuts deal likely to be extended

Zarif said that regional issues, including Syria, would be discussed at a meeting in the Kremlin later on Tuesday. "We have maintained diplomatic relations for more than 500 years", the press service of the Kremlin cited Putin as saying.

Iran's production stood at about 3.7 million barrels a day in the last quarter of 2016, according to independent sources used by OPEC. "The two sides see such cooperation as an important step towards the success of the UN-backed Geneva talks", the joint statement said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that Syrian peace talks sponsored by Tehran, Russia and Turkey would continue in Kazakhstan without specifying a date for the next round of negotiations.

"Suffice it to say that past year our trade grew 70 percent, which is a unique achievement amid the current economic difficulties", he added.

Meanwhile, Iran and Russian Federation signed 14 documents for the expansion of cooperation in various political, economic, judicial, legal, scientific and cultural fields.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani takes part in a news conference near the United Nations General Assembly in the Manhattan borough of NY, U.S., September 22, 2016.

It was announced here on Thursday that Rouhani would make an official visit to Moscow on March 27 at the invitation of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will also hold separate discussions with Rouhani and several agreements are expected to be signed.




"This is a working document, not the first between Rosatom and the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran", the source said.

Rouhani added: "In recent years our relations have entered the fourth stage of their development, which is marked by the proximity of the positions of the parties on a number of key global issues".

The two countries are both supporting the Pro-Assad forces and have helped Damascus to regain territories from the rebels.

Following their meeting in Moscow, the presidents of Iran and Russian Federation took part in a joint press conference.

Iran plans to continue cooperation with Russian Federation on issues of the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action of 2015, Rouhani said.

Iran's chief executive added that Tehran and Moscow would continue their campaign against terrorism until terrorism is eradicated across the region.
