Iran Railways Head Resigns After Deadly Train Crash
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin offered condolences to Iran’s counterpart on the train crash in northern Iran that killed 45 people and injured dozens more, the Kremlin said Monday.

"Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences on the train disaster in the Iranian province of Semnan on November 25 that killed many people," the Kremlin press office said in a statement.

During the phone call, Vladimir Putin and Hassan Rouhani discussed urgent issues of bilateral ties. They focused on progress made in trade and economic relations since they last met in Azerbaijan in early August.

The presidents agreed Russia and Iran should work closer together to shore up the rising trade flows, which surged by 80 percent to $1.6 billion in the past nine months.
