Senior MP Calls for Iran-Russia Cooperation to Foil Western Sanctions

TEHRAN, Aug. 27, 2014 (FNA)- A senior Iranian lawmaker underlined that collaboration and interaction between Tehran and Moscow can nullify the current Western sanctions against both nations.

"Cooperating and bringing closer together the viewpoints of the two countries on regional and international issues, and identifying commercial and trade potentialities can definitely neutralize the sanctions,", Head of Iran-Russia Parliamentary Friendship Group Ramazanali Sobhanifar said in a meeting with Russian lawmaker Yuri Saviliev on Wednesday.

The senior Iranian legislator also said expansion of ties between the two countries parliaments can contribute to the promotion of political, economic and cultural ties between Tehran and Moscow.

Sobhanifar underlined the need to make optimum use of industrial, agricultural and trade potentials to further expand the bilateral relations between the two regional kingpins.

He called on Tehran and Moscow to support their private sectors in a bid to help develop and boost their bilateral economic ties.

The Russian lawmaker, for his part, stressed the development of cooperation between the two countries parliaments.

Saviliev, who is a member of the Russia-Iran Parliamentary Friendship Group, also called for the implementation of economic and industrial agreements between Tehran and Moscow.

The US and its European allies have imposed sanctions against Iran under the pretext that Iran pursues non-civilian objectives in its nuclear technology network, an accusation that Iran denies.

The US and EU have imposed an array of embargoes on Russian individuals and businesses over the crisis in Ukraine as well. They accuse Moscow of supporting anti-Kiev protesters in Eastern and Southern Ukraine. Russia denies the allegation.

The volume of trade transactions between Iran and Russia currently hits $5 billion a year, but economists say the two countries can multiple the volume of their trade exchanges.
