TEHRAN (Iran News) – Tehran’s Ambassador to Moscow Mehdi Sanayee said both the Iranian and Russian nations can get closer to each other by expanding their media cooperation and exchanges.
“Iranians and Russians still need more understanding of each other and media cooperation will be useful in this regard,” Sanayee said on Monday, addressing Iran-Russia media committee meetings.
The Iranian ambassador to Russia noted that Tehran and Moscow are still working on further expanding of bilateral relations, and said, “Various committees have been formed in different fields over the last few years to achieve these objectives.”
Despite the fact that Iran and Russia enjoy good governmental relations, it is still necessary to develop ties between the two countries’ non-governmental organizations (NGOs), Sanayee added.
The second meeting of Iran-Russia Media Cooperation Committee was held on Monday in Moscow in the presence of Sanayee, deputy minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance along with a number of media representatives in both countries.
The two sides discussed the achievements of the agreements reached in the first meeting of the Media Cooperation Committee.
In a relevant development in late June, Sanayee stressed the high importance of cooperation between Tehran and Moscow in international arrangements and developments.
“Cooperation between Iran and Russia is effective in the new regional and international arrangements and the new global order will be influenced by the two countries’ cooperation,” Sanayee said in Russia, addressing the 3rd round of specialized talks between Iran and Russia.
“I believe that the ‘East’ policy will be strengthened in the world and international developments will move ahead in a way that importance of cooperation between Iran and Russia will increase,” he added.
In relevant remarks in January, Sanayee said that Tehran-Moscow ties became stronger and bilateral relations increased after the two countries saw common interests in regional and international developments.
He described the development of Iran-Russia political and security relations after the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as unparalleled, adding that the bilateral ties have yet to use all the potentials to further develop.
Sanayee first addressed the latest status of relations between Iran and Russia in political, economic and cultural fields, saying relations between the two countries have undergone a major transformation as a result of the growth of mutual needs and regional conditions.
According to Sanayee, since the signing of the 2015 nuclear deal also known as the JCPOA, economic relations between Iran and Russia have multiplied, but the developing relations have yet to reach the desired levels using potentials.
The Iranian diplomat also hailed Iran’s cultural activities in Russia. Meanwhile, he described the development of Iran-Russia political, security relations as unparalleled.
The two countries’ common approaches and perspectives towards global trends and shared regional interests, especially in relation to the Middle East developments, were the most important force behind the development of political relations between the two countries, according to the Iranian ambassador.
