IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, Nov 27, IRNA -- Iranian and Russian officials will resume 
talks on the project concerning Zohreh Satellite as of Monday, it 
was announced here Saturday. 
According to Iran`s embassy in Moscow, a Russian delegation 
will leave for Tehran on Sunday. 
The Russian delegation, whose members have not yet been declared, 
will discuss the issue with the officials of Iran`s Ministry of 
Communication and Information Technology. 
The project has been on the agenda of both countries for a while, 
but no agreement has so long been reached due to various reasons. 
During the upcoming visit, the Russian delegation is intent on 
following up the issue to reach an accord. 
Iran`s Ambassador to Moscow, Gholam-Reza Shafei had earlier 
referred to the bureaucracy dominating both countries as one of the 
obstacles interfering with expansion of economic cooperation. 
According to Shafei, the failure to implement the satellite 
project several years after the primary agreement was reached 
between Iran and Russia is one such example.
