Russia – Iran
Iran is currently one of Russia’s key trade and economic partners in the Middle East. In 2021, trade turnover between the two countries reached an all-time high of approximately USD 4 billion. Russia and Iran are interested in cooperation more than ever – both at the bilateral level and as part of regional international organizations and initiatives (the SCO and EEU, among others). Experts also see a wide range of potential opportunities that are opening up in the changing economic environment. What needs to be done to fully realize the potential of bilateral relations? What steps should be taken today to strengthen internal and external conditions to develop trade and economic ties between Iran and Russia?
