MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani to be held on August 8 in Azerbaijan's capital Baku will upgrade bilateral relations, Iranian Communications Minister and head of the Iran-Russia joint economic commission Mahmoud Vaezi said on Friday.

"The meeting of the two leaders in Tehran in 2015 was a climax in the Russian-Iranian relations. The next meeting between Rouhani and Putin on August 8 in Baku will bring the relations to the next level," Vaezi said at the meeting with Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak.
