Iranian Supreme Leader's Adviser Hails 'Very Constructive' Meeting With Putin

Argentina has asked Russian Federation to arrest former Iranian foreign minister Ali Akbar Velayati for extradition in connection with the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Buenos Aires, the foreign ministry said Thursday.

The presence of these issues, in the letters delivered to Putin, underscores the assertion by Tehran's embassy in Moscow that Velayati will meet the Russian energy minister after his meeting with Putin.

Haaretz reports that Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also met Putin in Moscow on Wednesday, and urged the Russian president to demand that Iranian forces leave Syria. Washington says it will reimpose sanctions and has told other countries to halt all imports of Iranian oil from November 4 or face U.S. financial measures.

"In foreign policy, relations between two countries are considered strategic when both sides consider them as strategic and deal with each other on this basis", AbuTalbi said.

As Syrian President Bashar al-Assad overcomes one of the last bastions of a 2011 uprising backed by the West, Turkey and Gulf Arab states, neighboring Israel has increasingly warned against perceived violations of the 1974 non-aggression pact between the two warring governments under the auspices of the United Nations.

After the relatively flat first nine days, the race will head south and into the Alps and then the Pyrenees Mountains. A group of around 40 riders including Froome opened up a gap of over a minute, but Martin and the rest hustled back.

Qassemi told the IRIB that Velayati will also pay a visit to China to convey messages from Ayatollah Khamenei and Rouhani to Chinese leaders. Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, a special adviser on global affairs to the speaker of Iran's parliament, said Velayati was scheduled to meet Putin on Thursday and would discuss ways to confront U.S. policy in the Middle East region.

A US State Department official said this month that Washington's goal was to get as many countries as possible down to zero Iranian oil imports. He said Iran and Russian Federation will maintain their military presence in Syria to make sure terrorists will not resurge.

Velayati will likely hold a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday.

While speculations are rife about a US-Russia deal to put an end to the Iranian presence in Syria, coinciding with Israeli premier's visit to Moscow, Velayati commented: "Netanyahu's visit to Moscow won't have an effect on our strategic mission there" pointing out that "no one cares what the later (Netanyahu) will have to say" as he put it.
