Shoigu discussed the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh in Tehran

In Tehran on Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Bagheri discussed the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh, Syria and Afghanistan.

“This, of course, includes Syria, Afghanistan, and what is happening today in your northern neighbor is Karabakh,” Shoigu said, proposing to separately discuss the aggravated situation in Transcaucasia, as well as other pressing issues of bilateral military cooperation.

The Russian Defense Minister noted that today and tomorrow he will discuss with Iranian military leaders topics related to “issues of military education, exchange of delegations, joint naval exercises.”

“Recently, the intensity of meetings has increased significantly, both at the highest level and at the level of the leadership of military departments. We see in this a general view of building a world order based on the equality of all participants in international relations,” noted the Russian Minister of Defense, and emphasized that “Iran is Russia’s strategic partner in the Middle East, and Russian-Iranian relations in the defense sector are developing dynamically and positive.”
