Boroujerdi: Downgrading ties with Russia not on Majlis agenda

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, June 27, IRNA -- Head of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Ala’eddin Boroujerdi said on Sunday that downgrading ties with Russia is not on his Commission’s agenda.

In an interview with IRNA, Boroujerdi dismissed claims that Majlis mulls cutting ties with Russia over its recent stances towards Iran and stressed that no such topic is on his commission's agenda, though there have been complaints about the Russian government’s recent move against Iran.

Boroujerdi said, “It seems that not enought attention has been paid to transferring facts raised at the Majlis Commission to newspapers.”

Some papers have in their Sunday edition quoted deputy head of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission as saying that downgrading relations with Russia had been one of the main topics under discussion in recent meeting of the Commission with certain officials.
