Iran-Russia ties will continue to grow: Envoy

TEHRAN, May 25 (MNA) – Iran’s Ambassador to Russia, Kazem Jalali, stated that Iran and Russia will continue to strengthen their ties even after the martyrdom of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Ambassador Jalali stated that the progress of Moscow-Tehran ties, initiated by President Raeisi and Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian, will continue as before.

He made these remarks at a ceremony held at Moscow’s Islamic Center, attended by Muslims from Iran, Russia, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan, as well as university students from other countries including Japan.

Also in his remarks, Jalali expressed gratitude towards top Russian officials for their sympathy and assistance since the moment the helicopter carrying Raeisi and his companions went missing in northwest Iran on May 19.

The ambassador said that even though the news came out on holiday, Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting with his security and military officials on how to assist Iran at that difficult time.

Jalali added that he had been invited to attend the meeting as well, and kept connection with Russian officials afterwards.

Russian officials continued to sympathize with the Iranian nation after the martyrdom of Raeisi and Amir-Abdollahian was announced, he added.

The ambassador, meanwhile, hailed the late president and foreign minister for their efforts to serve Iran’s national interests.

He said that Raeisi was also a caring person for the people of Gaza and made a lot of efforts to alleviate their suffering.
