TEHRAN, January 4 (Sputnik) — Russia's International Information Agency Rossiya Segodnya and Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) signed an agreement Sunday on the increase of cooperation between the two agencies.
"Iran and Russia are natural allies in building a multi-polar, multistructural, multi-colored world… We have mostly a common understanding with the leadership of IRNA of the situation in the international information space and the purpose of our work," Rossiya Segodnya's General Director Dmitry Kiselev said at the signing of the agreement with IRNA's Head Mohammad Khoddadi.
According to the signed memorandum, the sides will develop bilateral cooperation between Russia and Iran. Joint projects of the two agencies will focus on creation of common information space and promotion of objective coverage of the two countries in the world media field.
"Relations between the two countries are at a high level. It is necessary to fill the gap in the information sphere. In our work, we have to rely on first-hand information rather than sources of third countries," Khoddadi said in his turn.
