TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Seyed Abbas Mousavi and his Russian counterpart in a virtual meeting discussed ways to boost cooperation between Tehran and Moscow in the field of media and communications.
During the meeting on Tuesday evening, Mousavi and Maria Zakharova discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the two countries in the media sphere and countering the fake atmosphere the Western states have created.
The two spokespersons dismissed the claims raised by the Western states that their media is impartial and independent, stressing that the media in the West has currently turned into an instrument for psychological warfare and propagating false news against independent countries.
Mousavi and Zakharova also highlighted the growing relations between Iran and Russia in all fields, describing the close ties between the two countries and their common stances on various issues, including regional cooperation and opposition to the cruel Western sanctions, as an opportunity for closer cooperation between the foreign ministry spokespersons of the two nations.
They also talked about other issues such as the exchange of media delegations, preparing the ground for interaction between the media communities of the two countries, facilitating the interviews that the two countries’ media conduct with each other’s officials, and the plans to keep holding bilateral consultations between the Foreign Ministry spokespersons of the two countries and with the foreign ministry spokespersons of other friendly and like-minded nations.
