Russian Ambassador denies Moscow displeasure with Syria’s Assad’s visit to Iran: UK media

Tehran, The Russian ambassador to Tehran denied on Wednesday media reports claiming Moscow was unhappy with Syrian President Bashar alAssad's recent visit to Iran, according to Middle East Monitor.

We were never worried about this visit,' wrote Levan Dzhagaryan in a statement.

Calling the media reports about Moscow's displeasure with Assad's visit to Tehran as baseless, Dzhagaryan wrote that the aim of spreading such reports was to create a rift in the IranianRussianSyrian relations.

He added that the media outlets that circulated the news did not succeed in their goal.

We are committed to our friendship and our commitment to Iran both in the nuclear agreement and in other issues such as human rights and regional policies,' Dzhagaryan said, adding that Washington and its allies' criticisms of Iran on regional policies were baseless.

We are satisfied with the current level of mutual cooperation between Iran and Russia in various fields.

He also hoped that the banking problems between the two countries would be resolved through joint efforts.

Russia and Iran are scheduled to discuss the development of mutual economic cooperation during the next meeting of the RussianIranian Joint Committee scheduled in June.

The Syrian president visited Tehran on February 25. He met with the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
