TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan is slated to take part in an upcoming international conference on security issues in the Russian capital of Moscow.
In a letter to Russian Defense Minister General Sergei Shoigu, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan announced that he has accepted the Russian minister’s official invitation to participate in the conference.
He also described a recent trip by General Shoigu to Tehran as a “milestone” in relations between Iran and Russian.
