Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov discussed the coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday.

High praise was given during the conversation to bilateral cooperation in countering this global challenge, announced Russian Foreign Ministry in a statement, reported mid.ru.

The Russian minister reiterated Russia’s plans to continue to comprehensively promote Russian-Iranian trade and economic ties and investment projects, including increasing the supply of agricultural products, being among other things under the pressure of illegal unilateral US sanctions.
