Moscow affirms ties with Iranian radicals


WASHINGTON – Moscow is reaffirming its ties to Tehran as a “geopolitical ally” as it seeks closer diplomatic, economic and cultural ties with the Islamic republic, according to report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Levichev’s reaffirmation of that relationship following a meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, also may signal to the West that any effort to take military action against Iran over its nuclear program would be opposed by Moscow.
