Moscow, July 2, IRNA -- President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is in Moscow to attend the second Summit of Gas Exporting Countries Forum, met with a group of Iranians residing in Moscow and told them Iran and Russia cannot be enemies of each other.

On relations between Iran and Russia, the president said the two countries are historical neighbours and cannot be enemies of each other.

ˈOur friendship is in favor of the two nations and all regional countries and must be strengthened,ˈ said President Ahmadinejad.

ˈFortunately, the president of Russia follows the same policy. Of course, Iran-Russia relations have certain enemies, because hegemonic powers never want two nations to be friends and they always want to be the ruler of the world.ˈ

Stressing that development of relations is the basis of social life, the president said further relations with all countries and people who are against hegemony is among the policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
