Telephone conversation with President of Iran Hassan Rouhani

March 28, 2016

On Russia’s initiative, Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with President of Iran Hassan Rouhani.

The two presidents discussed in detail the situation in Syria, particularly in connection with the Syrian Armed Forces’ successful operations, which, with support from Russia’s Aerospace Forces, have forced ISIS extremists out of the ancient town of Palmyra, a world cultural heritage site.

The two leaders noted that this is a very significant event, also in the context of the continued fight against the terrorist groups in Syria.

Mr Putin and Mr Rouhani also exchanged views on current bilateral issues and agreed to activate contacts at various levels.
