Telephone conversation with President of Iran Hassan Rouhani

March 26, 2015

Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Hassan Rouhani at the initiative of the Iranian side.

The two leaders had a detailed discussion of pressing issues in the successfully developing Russian-Iranian relations, expressing mutual interest in additional steps to expand trade and economic ties and cooperation in nuclear power.

They were also satisfied with the progress made at the talks with Iran by the six international mediators (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and the Federal Republic of Germany) to resolve the situation around the Iranian nuclear programme, expressing hope for success at the new round of talks within this format that has begun today in Lausanne.

Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani also exchanged views on the sharp deterioration of the situation in the Republic of Yemen. The Russian side stressed the urgency of an immediate cessation of hostilities and of stepping up efforts, including by the UN, to develop options for a peaceful settlement of the conflict.
