Putin will visit Iran for tripartite Russian-Iranian-Turkish talks
The Kremlin spokesperson confirmed that Putin and Erdogan will hold discussions in Tehran on July 19 within the framework of the Astana Peace Talks.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov confirmed on Tuesday Putin's visit to Tehran on the 19th of July, 2022.
The Kremlin’s statement came after Chief of Economic Commission of Iran’s Parliament Mohammadreza Pour-Ebrahimi said, as quoted by Iran's state news agency IRNA, that Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit Tehran next week.
Pour-Ebrahimi added that a positive atmosphere has been formed for the mutual cooperation between the two countries, most notably following the recent trip by Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi to Russia.
"Very favorable agreements were signed during that trip, President Raisi marked a new chapter of economic relations between Iran and Russia and assured the Russians that the government of the Islamic Republic is serious about economic cooperation with Russia,” he said.
The top Iranian diplomat highlighted that the US and European embargo on Russia made Moscow increase economic cooperation with Tehran.
Al Mayadeen correspondent in Moscow reported that there will be a tripartite Russian-Iranian-Turkish summit in Tehran in the coming week.
Peskov confirmed that Putin, Raisi, and Erdogan will hold discussions in Tehran on July 19 within the framework of the Astana Peace Talks.
