Lifting sanctions to boost Moscow-Tehran cooperation: Russia

Moscow: The expected lifting of the sanctions on Iran will boost cooperation between Moscow and Tehran, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.

The cooperation in the military-technical sphere was of particular importance due to threats and challenges in the Caspian region, Lavrov said after meeting here with his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, Xinhua reported.

“It is an important task to prevent the threats and risks in the region,” Lavrov said.

Iran and the six countries it has been negotiating with over its nuclear programme, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, wrapped up their protracted talks on July 14 with a historic 100-page accord.

Zarif said the lifting of the sanctions against Iran has opened wide prospects for cooperation between Tehran and Moscow, including in the nuclear sector.
