With a military coup underway in Egypt and a horrific civil war underway in Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin decided to meet with out-going Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to strengthen the emerging Russian-Iranian alliance.
Vladimir Putin and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad discussed current bilateral cooperation issues.
At the meeting, the two presidents discussed, in particular, the prospects for increasing trade between the two countries and cooperation in the energy sector.
