Expressing that the cooperation between Iran and Russia can be an effective and deterrent against unilateralism, the President expressed hope that the Comprehensive Document of Cooperation between the two countries would be finalised in order to maximise cooperation.

Pointing out that there is no obstacle to the comprehensive development of relations between the two countries, Dr Raisi said, "We are pleased with Russia's economic progress and growth towards self-reliance and we are determined to implement the policies of Economy of Resistance to promote resilience to economic shocks, especially against the oppressive sanctions of the United States and Europe”.

In this meeting, the Speaker of the Russian State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin also congratulated Dr Raisi for his election and wished him success on behalf of himself and President Vladimir Putin, emphasising the need to improve cooperation between the two countries in all fields.

He also expressed the readiness of the Russian Parliament for playing a role in this regard, saying, "Your proposal to finalise the document on comprehensive cooperation between Iran and Russia will be conveyed to Mr Putin”.

The Speaker of the Russian State Duma also stated that his country has always supported the development of relations with Iran in various fields, adding, "Relations between the two countries are still far from the desired level, and I will do my part to accelerate the improvement of the level of relations within the framework of parliamentary relations with Iran".

"Sanctions against Iran and Russia were imposed with the aim of weakening our countries, but we will overcome these obstacles together to promote interactions and progress," he said.
