Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi has concluded his two-day trip to Russia. During the visit, he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and senior officials. One of the highlights of his trip was his speech at the Russian State Duma. Raeisi slammed sanctions as a new form of domination, calling for a collective response from independent nations to counter such measures.

During the trip, the presidents of Iran and Russia assigned their foreign ministers to lay out a roadmap for mutual cooperation over the next two decades. Iran has already handed over to Moscow a draft agreement on the strategic cooperation. Many believe that the visit of the Iranian president to Russia marks a turning point in relations between the two countries.

Iran and Russia signed several deals during the two-day visit. One of them was an agreement on facilitating bilateral banking transactions. The two countries agreed to accelerate projects based on a five-billion-dollar credit line, including three power generator stations and two rail and transit projects.

The visit of Iranian president to Moscow serves as a turning point in relations between Iran and Russia. The two sides enjoy historic and strategic ties and enjoy similar views when it comes to most regional issues.
