The President of Iran spoke at the plenary meeting of the State Duma

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi addressed the deputies of the State Duma at the plenary session.

Before that, a meeting was also held between the Chairman of the State Duma Viacheslav Volodin and Seyed Ebrahim Raisi.

The President of Iran, speaking at the plenary session, thanked for the warm welcome in Moscow and congratulated the Russians on the New Year and Christmas. According to him, the people of Iran and the Islamic world attach great importance to the person of Jesus Christ and respect religious values. “In accordance with our canonical teachings, we believe that the most important message among all Abrahamic religions is common. This is the spiritual perfection of mankind,” said Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi.

In his speech, he also touched upon the development of relations between Iran and Russia.

“Today, fortunately, there are very good, clear prospects for the development of bilateral relations at the interregional and international levels. Strengthening Iranian-Russian relations in bilateral and multilateral formats will lead to the development of the economy of the two countries, as well as peace and security in the region,” the President of Iran said.

He stressed that the Islamic Republic stands for maximum interaction with all countries of the world.

“The purpose of this interaction is to realize the common interests of peoples, as well as to form a global civilized society. Such cooperation is possible only through the implementation and commitment to justice, morality and spirituality,” said Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi.

According to him, the root of violence, terrorism, the collapse of the institution of the family and the spread of drugs in the world lies in the isolation of politics from morality and spirituality.

The Iranian President stressed that the successful joint efforts of Russia and Iran in the fight against the terrorist threat in Syria would lead to the strengthening of security in the region.

“I want to thank the Russian Federation for cooperation under the wise rule of the President of the Russian Federation, Mr. Vladimir Putin. This can become an effective model for the development of our relations in various directions,” said Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi.

However, as the President of Iran noted, the war against terrorism is only part of the fight against domination and expansion.

“At present, we see that the strategy of domination has failed and the US is in its weakest position. The power of independent states is being further developed. We are going through a historical period of development,” said Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi.

He noted that Western countries will not lose their desire to continue to pursue an expansionary policy. According to him, they pursue the goal of weakening independent states from within through the introduction of economic sanctions and destabilization of the internal situation.

“NATO is engaged in penetration into the geographical spaces of different countries under various pretexts and covers. The spread of the Western model and opposition to independent democracies, opposition to the self-identification of the people, culture and traditions – this is precisely on the agenda of NATO,” the President of Iran said.

In this regard, Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi noted the readiness to develop relations with the Russian Federation on a solid basis in order to ensure bilateral interests and prevent the penetration of third elements into the affairs of the two countries. According to him, fundamental agreements have been reached between Iran and Russia, which will lead to a leap in the development of trade relations.
