TEHRAN, May 31 (MNA) – Iran's VP for Science and Technology Affairs Sorena Sattari is visiting Moscow to attend the third meeting of the High Commission of Technologic Cooperation between Iran and Russia.

Following the numerous visits of officials of both countries and bilateral agreements achieved after, there are currently 40 joint scientific projects that Tehran and Moscow are determined to run. Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Affairs, Sorena Sattari, arrived in Moscow on Monday to attend the third round of the High Commission of Technologic Cooperation between Iran and Russia on Wednesday.

The commission is expected to follow the course of these 40 agreements and joint projects of Tehran and Moscow. Russian Deputy Prime Minister in Charge of Defense and Space Industry Dmitry Rogozin will co-chair the event along with Sattari.

Sattari, during his visit to Moscow, is accompanied by a high-ranking delegation of scientists, researchers, and academicians.

The commission was formed after Sattari’s visit to Moscow in 2014, during which he proposed a mechanism for follow-up, management, and removal of obstacles ahead of the scientific agreements made between the two countries.
