Russian President Vladimir Putin received Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s Foreign Policy Adviser Ali Akbar Velayati in his Novo-Ogaryovo residence on Thursday.

The meeting also involved Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, while the Iranian delegation also included head of the Supreme Leader’s board of advisers Ali Asghar Fathi Sarbangoli and Iran’s Ambassador to Russia Mehdi Sanai.

On Wednesday, Putin held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who described them as highly important. Netanyahu later pointed out he had reiterated at the meeting with Putin that Israel strongly opposed Iran’s presence in Syria in any form.
