Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran to discuss efforts to counter terrorism, drug trafficking

Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived in the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday for a visit seen by the Islamic republic's leadership as a clear rejection of U.S. policy.

Both Tehran and Moscow now support Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and are fighting together against the Islamic State terrorist group.

Pragmatist Iranian President Hassan Rouhani echoed Khamenei, saying Iran and Russian Federation together could tackle "regional terrorism" - an allusion to Sunni Muslim armed groups hostile to Iran, Assad and many other Arab states.

"Active cooperation has been maintained within the Gas Exporting Countries Forum", where Russian Federation and Iran are the organization's members, while Azerbaijan is an observer.

He has said that a team of NDRF consisting 32 rescuers has reached Unchahar from Lucknow to conduct relief and rescue operation. The grievously injured will receive Rs 50,000 and others who sustained injuries will receive Rs 25,000 as compensation.

The rapprochement between Iran and Russian Federation is worrying for both Saudi Arabia, Shi'ite Muslim Tehran's main Sunni rival for dominance in the Middle East, and the United States. "We could see that it wasn't easy", Putin said referring to the traffic in the Iranian capital.

Tehran signed the deal with six countries including Russian Federation and the United States, but Trump last month refused to certify the agreement, drawing criticism from Moscow which slammed the USA president's "aggressive and threatening rhetoric" against Iran.

U.S. President Donald Trump has lambasted the deal and refused to confirm whether his government will comply with it.

Iran's Leader also called for resistance against the (opponents') temptations and sabotage saying that bilateral ties and cooperation must be expanded in different fields in a highly motivated way. These were lifted under the 2015 accord in return for Tehran curbing nuclear activity of potential use in developing an atomic bomb.

However, the US administration's repositioning on the deal has emboldened hardliners in Iran were against the accord. Salehi said that Iran could resume uranium enrichment of 20 percent within four days if it wished.

At the summit, Rouhani said interaction between the three countries helps promote regional cooperation and stability, adding that Iran "welcomes any idea and mechanism that could strengthen relations among Tehran, Moscow and Baku".

"This is a very important visit [by Putin]".

As reported, the Russian President's working visit will end by a private talk with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
