EghtesadOnline: Iranian and Russian presidents will sign several bilateral agreements and deals such as documents related to facilitation of visa issuance, Russian ambassador to Iran announced.
“Preparation and regulation of a series of bilateral agreements and contracts are underway which will be signed during Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s visit to Moscow in late march,” Russian ambassador to Iran, Levan Dzhagaryan, told Sputnik.
“One of the most important agreements is related to introducing simpler rules for the issuance of visas between Tehran and Moscow that allows their tour groups enjoy visa-free travel to each other countries from 2017,” he added. “We hope two ways tourism significantly increases in the wake of signing this agreement and the two countries’ citizens could know better each other culture, way of life and history.”
“During the visit, the sides will discuss the main aspects of bilateral relations concerning the political and trade and economic sectors. Aside from this, attention will be paid to the most urgent issues on the regional agenda, such as the situation in Afghanistan, the Caspian problem, the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and developments in Syria,” ISNA quoted Dzhagaryan as saying.
