Elsewhere, Velayati said that both Iran and Russian Federation highlighted the need to continue cooperation in the region to support the legitimate governments of Iraq and Syria; President Putin agrees that this cooperation should continue in both the defense and the political sphere, he added.

Ali Akbar Velayati, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's top adviser on worldwide affairs, smiles as he listens to questions from the media during a news conference after meeting with Lebanon's Prime Minister Tammam Salam at the government palace in Beirut May 18, 2015.

"He (Netanyahu) is an itinerant person who travels to somewhere in the world every day", Velayati told reporters upon his arrival in Moscow. Washington says it will reimpose sanctions and has told other countries to halt all imports of Iranian oil from November 4 or face United States financial measures.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Tuesday that the letters are aimed at "emphasizing the importance of expanded relations between Iran and Russia".

Touching upon nuclear cooperation, Velayati said that a 1000-MW reactor have been established in Iran with the help of Russian Federation and two other reactors are under construction.

Liverpool close to completing Shaqiri transfer
Liverpool were the frontrunners for his signature for some time having been interested in signing Shaqiri a few years back. The 26 year old joined the club in 2015 and was signed by Mark Hughes from Italian giants Inter Milan.

Iran has also made moves to align closer with China, with Velayati expected to visit Beijing in the near future, Reuters reports.

"He makes baseless and illogical remarks and nobody cares about his words", the Iranian official said.

Apart from the United States, the other signatories to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal - Russia, China, Germany, France and Britain - have said they still support the accord. However, Iranian and Russian interests in Syria are not perfectly aligned, and Russia has needed to balance its positive relations with Israel, whose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has opposed the presence of Iranians on the Israel-Syria border.

Velayati also said Iran and Russian Federation would "continue to cooperate in Syria", where both countries support President Bashar al-Assad's forces in the seven-year civil war there.

Argentina's government voiced its frustration with Russian President Vladimir Putin's administration on Thursday, after Moscow ignored a formal request from an Argentine judge to arrest a senior visiting Iranian official implicated in the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center in Buenos Aires.
