The Minister’s telephone conversations
Press release on Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s telephone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif
On April 10, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov had a telephone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on the latter’s initiative.
Mr Lavrov and Mr Zarif discussed the situation in Syria after the US missile strike against an air base in that country. Both parties stressed that such an aggressive action against a sovereign and independent state was an overt violation of international law, primarily the UN Charter, that it threatened regional security and was detrimental to the fight against international terrorism.

The ministers agreed to maintain close contact for further coordinating their cooperation on topical issues on the bilateral and international agendas.
