Khristenko, while noting the Union activities as a transnational organization since January, welcomed Iran’s membership and urged Iran to cooperate with the entity influentially and actively.
Sanaei, for his part, referred to Iran’s positive and progressing relations with Russia and EEU countries and expressed hope signing preferential tariff MoUs to be the first step of cooperation.
He added "this would result in extension of trade and economic relations, and the next step will be discussing Iran's membership."
