Presidents of Iran and Russia have stressed the importance of accelerating the promotion of relations in all fields.

In a meeting in the Azeri capital of Baku on Monday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin said Tehran and Moscow need to make more efforts to speed up the development of all-out cooperation.

Putin pointed to his key visit to Iran last November and his meetings with senior Iranian officials, particularly Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, and said Tehran and Moscow have managed to take very good steps toward the expansion of relations and that the two sides will continue to maintain their consolidated ties.

The Russian leader said that Moscow-Tehran ties have turned into an all-out strategic cooperation in different sectors, including politics and economy, the Kremlin website reported.

Relations between Iran and Russia have developed in all sectors, Putin said, stressing that he saw a bright prospect for the ties between the two countries.

Rouhani, for his part, praised his meeting with Putin as well as the Russian president’s visit to Iran and his talks with Iranian officials last year, Press TV reported.
