Mr. Lavrov pointed out Russo-Iranian relations are developing under no pressure exerted by the US or any other state.
The Russian Foreign Minister made comments on an Iranian newspaper carrying allegations that Russia had given consent to a military campaign against Iran in exchange for $5 bln from the U.S. "Where does that come from? If you are trying to find conspiracy of the kind behind Iran's back, I can assure you that you are mistaken," Mr. Lavrov stressed. According to him, such allegations are wrong and groundless.
Mr. Lavrov confirmed President Putin's intention to visit Iran.
"I confirmed that the Russian President remembers the invitation, and the date of his arrival will be specified later," the official said.
