Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova voiced her country’s readiness to broaden bilateral ties with Tehran.

“Moscow is prepared to cooperate with the next president and government of Iran,” the spokeswoman said in reference to Iran’s May 19 presidential election, Fars News Agency reported.

“Election is an internal affair and Russia will cooperate with the officials who assume office.”

Zakharova pointed to age-old relations between Iran and Russia and said, “President Hassan Rouhani and President Vladimir Putin have so far held talks nine times.”

Several documents were signed by the two countries’ officials during a March visit to Moscow by a high-powered Iranian delegation led by Rouhani.

In the same month, the Iranian and Russian presidents in a meeting in Moscow issued a joint statement to broaden mutual cooperation in various fields.

The 16-page joint statement titled “Moving Forward to Comprehensive Strategic Cooperation” covers vast areas of cooperation.
