Speaking in a meeting with Russia's Federation Council Chairperson Valentina Ivanovna Matvienko in Tehran on Monday, Rouhani said enhanced parliamentary relations between the two countries will strengthen the Tehran-Moscow relations even further.
"Iran-Russia relations are at their best in recent decades and the post-JCPOA era must be exploited for boosting economic, cultural, scientific and technological relations between the two countries" the Iranian President said.
"There is strategic cooperation between Iran and Russia to fight terrorism and such cooperation will continue until the eradication of terrorism in the region," Rouhani said, according to the PressTV.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Iranian president said Russia is an important friend and neighbor of the Islamic Republic and added that the two countries have common interests in the region and the world.
