On August 9, Russia and Iran held foreign ministry consultations on counterterrorism that were co-chaired by Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov and Deputy Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran Gholam Hossein Dehghani. During the meeting the officials discussed current issues on the international counterterrorism agenda, including the priority tasks of relevant international cooperation.

They exchanged views on terrorist threats in the Middle East and Afghanistan, and shared the two country’s experience and best practices used when countering terrorism.

They reaffirmed their commitment to a principled position on the need to consolidate the efforts of the international community, with the central coordinating role being played by the UN, in the global struggle against international terrorism and extremism on the basis of international legal standards.

The officials focused on the need to step up international cooperation with a view to countering foreign terrorist fighters and curbing the material and ideological support for terrorist organisations.

They also discussed prospects for cooperation and exchange of information in the area of combating terrorism in a bilateral format and at key international venues, primarily the UN.
