TEHRAN (IRNA) – Iran’s parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf said on Wednesday upon his arrival in Tehran after a 3-day trip to Moscow that preliminary works for Iran’s permanent membership in Eurasia Economic Union (EAEU) would start in two weeks, as Tehran has started talks to do so.

Qalibaf said that the trip was at the invitation of the Russian State Duma chairman and provided an opportunity to exchange opinions on regional and economic issues and parliamentarian cooperation.

He said that he delivered a message from Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to Russian President Vladimir Putin, adding:

The Leader emphasized on long-term coordination and strategic agreements with Russia. His message was of course broader, covering other issues, including economic and political ones, how to achieve agreements, future communications and policies between Iran and Russia.

Making remark on EAEU, which connects countries in the region to create a free trade zone, he declared Iran had commenced talks to make permanent its membership in the union. Preparatory works for Iran’s permanent membership in the EAEU is going to be done in two weeks.
