Russia, Iran and Turkey meet in Tehran

5 mins read

The Kremlin has stated that while Syria would be the main topic of discussion during the trilateral meetings, other important problems will also be covered.

Tuesday is the day when Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to arrive in Tehran for discussions with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.

Since the beginning of Russia’s military action in Ukraine on February 24, it will be his second journey abroad. He traveled to Turkmenistan and Tajikistan in late June to meet with the presidents of those nations and take part in the sixth Caspian Summit, which also included Iran.

The so-called Astana Peace Process, which was started by Moscow, Tehran, and Ankara in 2017 with the goal of seeking a peaceful resolution to the war in Syria, will be the context for the trilateral talks that will take place in the Iranian capital.

The three chiefs of state, according to the Kremlin, will talk about how to completely destroy the country’s hub for international terrorism, how to support the inter-Syrian peace process, and ways to address humanitarian concerns including post-conflict rebuilding.

After the talks, a joint statement from Putin, Raisi, and Erdogan would be released, according to Russian presidential adviser Yury Ushakov, who added that a draft had already been created.

There will also be bilateral discussions between the two presidents, and Putin is anticipated to meet with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the supreme leader of Iran.

The circumstances surrounding the delayed negotiations to restore the Iran nuclear deal will be discussed by the Russian president and his counterparts during those sessions.

Trade will also be discussed, since Moscow and Tehran are finalizing a new, significant cooperation agreement, according to Ushakov.

“Russia has a significant partnership with Iran. Our relationships are cordial, have a long history, and are progressing extremely successfully in many areas. Both parties intend to elevate their bilateral collaboration to the level of a strategic partnership, he noted.

Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary for the Kremlin, stated in an earlier interview with Iranian media that commerce between Russia and Iran had topped $4 billion in 2021 and increased by 31% in the first quarter of this year.

Peskov expressed optimism that despite being among the most sanctioned countries in the world, Russia and Iran would be able to develop relations that would enable them to lessen the impact of international sanctions on their economy.

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, the foreign minister of Iran, made it plain that his country will not aid any side in the crisis in Ukraine because Tehran thinks it “needs to be halted.” The minister stated this in response to US assertions that his nation intended to give Russia hundreds of drones, including military drones.

Raisi has also stated several times that Tehran is prepared to help to a diplomatic settlement to the Ukrainian issue.

Ushakov predicts that the subject of Ukrainian grain shipments from Black Sea ports would come up during Putin and Erdogan’s bilateral meeting. Turkey has been involved in a number of conflict-resolution initiatives and proclaims itself to be a neutral nation with regard to the situation in Ukraine. Recent global negotiations on the grain problem were held there with the involvement of the UN, Russia, and Ukraine.

One of the key topics of the phone call between Putin and Erdogan last week were food security. “It was time for the United Nations to take action for the proposal for the establishment of safe corridors via the Black Sea,” the Turkish leader remarked at the time.

One of the most significant rounds of peace talks between Kiev and Moscow took place in Istanbul in March.
