We are satisfied with level of relations between Iran and Russia in paving the way for de-escalation zones in Syria, Levan Jagarian said in an interview with Russian News Agency TASS published on Monday.

Both countries played major role in fighting terrorism, he said adding that cooperation between Iran and Russia in finding a political solution to Syrian issues and fighting the remaining of terrorist groups will be underway.

Iran and Russia will also be in touch with Turkey as a peace guarantor in Syria, he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Jagarian emphasized Iran's commitments to nuclear accord known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

JCPOA is the result of long and challenging negotiations, he said reiterating that no change should be suggested with this regard.
