Secretary General of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Akbar Ahmadian has started a key visit to Russia where he is expected to attend two major international security forums to raise public and global awareness about Israel’s aggression against Palestine and its standoff with Iran.

Ahmadian said upon arriving in the Russian city of Saint Petersburg on Tuesday that he will seek to support multilateralism and anti-Western discourses in the field of security during his presence in Russia where he will participate in an annual security forum and a meeting of top security officials of the BRICS grouping of developing nations.

He said Iran views presence in the two events as an opportunity to shed light on the plight of the oppressed Palestinian nation as they are struggling against a brutal Israeli aggression in Gaza.

The SNSC chief said he will also seek to raise awareness about an Israeli act of aggression that targeted the Iranian consulate in the Syrian capital of Damascus in early April as well as crimes the regime has committed against Iran in recent years.

Iran carried out a wave of drone and missile attacks on Israel on April 14 to compensate the regime’s bombardment of its Damascus consulate.

Experts say the attacks raised Iran’s profile as a major player in regional security issue and exposed vulnerabilities of an Israeli regime which has relied on all-out support from the US and other allies to commit numerous acts of genocide in Gaza in the past six months.

On the first day of his presence in Saint Petersburg, Ahmadian met with his Iraqi counterpart Qasim al-Araji where the two reviewed ongoing efforts to implement a high-profile security agreement between Tehran and Baghdad.
