Argentina asks Russian Federation to arrest visiting Iran official over 1994 bombing

Russia ready to invest up to $50bn in Iran’s oil sector

A senior Iranian official has conveyed a message from Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting in Moscow.

Touching upon nuclear cooperation, Velayati said that a 1000-MW reactor have been established in Iran with the help of Russian Federation and two other reactors are under construction.

The presence of these issues, in the letters delivered to Putin, underscores the assertion by Tehran's embassy in Moscow that Velayati will meet the Russian energy minister after his meeting with Putin. The United States pulled out of a multinational deal in May to lift sanctions against Iran in return for curbs to its nuclear programme.

Iran has also made moves to align closer with China, with Velayati expected to visit Beijing in the near future, Reuters reports. Washington says it will reimpose sanctions and has told other countries to halt all imports of Iranian oil from November 4 or face USA financial measures.

The Kremlin also said in a statement that Putin and Velayati exchanged views on bilateral Tehran-Moscow relations and the developments in the Middle East, including the Syria crisis.

Putin's meeting with Velayati followed Wednesday's talks in Moscow with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who restated Israel's determination that the Iranian military presence be removed from Syria entirely.

Love Island’s Laura single again after tensions bubble over in the villa
The pair have been getting closer in the villa and in the latest episode, Josh asked Kaz if she would be his girlfriend. He said that if they were to rekindle their relationship, it would be "like taking two steps back".

He said that after the US' withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was a strategic mistake made by the United States president, the Islamic Republic of Iran chose to send special envoys to convey the messages of top Iranian leaders to other countries.

According to a statement by the Foreign Ministry, he will also elaborate on Tehran's stance on the USA withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

He added that the cooperation in the region between the resistance front led by Iran and Russian Federation against terrorism and its supporters in Syria and other regional countries was indicative of an exemplary, strategic and long-term partnership between the two countries.

Lebanon's Shia Hezbollah group is accused of carrying out the bombing of the Jewish centre and of an attack on Israel's embassy in Buenos Aires two years earlier at Iran's demand.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, signed between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russian Federation - plus Germany.
