Islam News – President Vladimir Putin of Russia will visit Tehran next week for meetings with the leaders of Iran and Turkey, the Kremlin announced yesterday.

The trip is Putin’s latest in a recent diplomatic spree aimed at building ties with non-Western countries. It will offer him an opportunity to shore up military and economic backing to counter the West’s military assistance to Ukraine and its sanctions against Russia.

The move comes after President Biden’s national security adviser said that Russia was seeking surveillance drones from Iran, including those capable of firing missiles, to make up for its scarcity of unmanned aircraft.
