Tehran Ready to Host 3+3 South Caucasus Format Meeting

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian expressed the country’s readiness to host a meeting of the 3+3 South Caucasus Platform in Tehran.

In a meeting with Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Alexander Grushko, held in Tehran on Monday, Amirabdollahian called for the promotion of cooperation between the two countries.

He also stressed the need for regional cooperation in order to meet the current challenges across the region.

For his part, Grushko lauded the bilateral, regional and international cooperation between Russia and Iran, stressing the need to enhance the ties.

Russian and Iranian officials have time and again said that the two countries are determined to further expand bilateral ties. They have expressed confidence that the aim will materialize, despite all the challenges the two nations might face, given the numerous capacities the two sides have.

Putin also said at the meeting that the Western states are not the masters of their word because they give as they want or take when they want.
