In the gathering, the two officials signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation between the auditing organizations of Iran and Belarus. The 13-article MoU entails interaction between the two states for five years.

Denouncing the cruel sanctions that cause suffering to the nations, Bazrpash said Iran and Belarus can enhance coordination to nullify the sanctions together.

“One way to neutralize the sanctions is unity among those sanctioned against the cruel country that imposes sanctions,” the Iranian official added.

For his part, Gerasimov decried the sanctions against Tehran and Minsk, saying Belarus and Iran are friends helping each other in tough times.
