"Today we outlined the directions for development of our cooperation and those projects which will be discussed soon to make sure they develop.. I hope that in these two days we shall get a positive result and maybe tomorrow, summing everything up, we would be able to talk about… specific contracts," Novak said.
According to the Russian minister, the sides discussed Iranian energy development issues.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said in September that Russia was highly satisfied with the progress in cooperation with Iran in various areas, including the fight against terrorism and projects in peaceful nuclear energy.
Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers — including Russia, the United States, China, France and the United Kingdom plus Germany — reached a deal in July to monitor and limit Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the easing of international sanctions, which opened the way for Tehran to pursue energy projects.
