TEHRAN (FNA)– Russian President Vladimir Putin in a landmark meeting with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in Tehran on Monday
described Tehran as “a trustworthy and reliable ally in the region and the world”, and vowed not to betray his partnership with Iran under any condition.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is an independent and solid strong country with very good prospects, and we see you as a trustworthy and reliable ally
in the region and the world,” the Russian president said at the meeting with Ayatollah Khamenei today.
“Unlike certain parties, we are committed to avoid stabbing our partners from behind and refrain from taking any behind-the-stage move against our friends and to resolve any difference that may arise through dialogue,” he added.
The Russian leader further described the two countries’ position on Syria as “very close”, and reiterated the crucial importance of the two states’ cooperation in this regard.
“We also stress that the Syrian crisis can only be resolved through political means and people’s vote and accepting the demands of all Syrian peoples and groups, and no one has the right to impose his views on the people of that country to decide about the government structure and fate of the president of Syria,” Putin continued.
“As your Excellency stated, the Americans are seeking to obtain the goals that they have failed to materialize through the clashes in Syria at the negotiating table and we are taking note of this issue,” he added.
The Russian leader laid further emphasis on his country’s continued attacks on the terrorist groups in Syria, and termed Tehran-Moscow cooperation and
consultation over the process of the political solution of the Syrian issue “fully necessary”.
“Those who claim to be advocates of democracy cannot oppose elections in Syria,” Putin said.
At the end of the meeting, the Russian president presented an ancient manuscript of the Holy Quran to the Iranian leader that showed his deep understanding of Ayatollah Khamenei.
