Telephone conversation with President of Iran Hassan Rouhani

August 28, 2013

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of Iran Hassan Rouhani on the Iranian side’s initiative.

The leaders gave particular attention to the situation in and surrounding Syria. Both sides feel that the use of chemical weapons by anyone is fundamentally unacceptable. Given the recent appeals for external military intervention in the Syrian conflict, they also stressed the need to follow the path of conflict settlement using purely political and diplomatic means.

In addition, the Presidents discussed certain bilateral cooperation issues and the schedule for upcoming contacts.
