Moscow welcomes Zarif proposal on relations with Persian Gulf countries
Russia considers as interesting and productive Iran’s proposal for Persian Gulf countries to sign a non-aggression pact, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.
The Russian diplomat noted that the recent proposal by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif that Persian Gulf countries should sign a non-aggression pact was perceived with interest in Russia.
"This is also a productive idea," TASS cited Ryabkov as saying.
Zarif earlier said that Tehran was seeking to establish balanced relations with Persian Gulf countries and was ready to sign a non-aggression pact with them.
