"We have cooperation with Russia's armed forces and bilateral cooperation has been improved in recent years," he was quoted as saying.

Iran has signed agreements with Russia on arms purchases after the termination of a decade-long UN arms embargo on Tehran, which would be discussed during the ongoing visit, he added.
