Russian, Iranian leaders to meet Thursday: Kremlin

17th November 2010, Comments 0 comments

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will Thursday hold their first bilateral talks since a recent breakdown in relations, the Kremlin said.

The brief meeting, on the sidelines of a summit of Caspian Sea littoral nations in the Azerbaijani capital Baku, is scheduled to begin at 3:10 pm (1110 GMT), the Kremlin said, without providing further details.

The talks will be the first between the two presidents since Russia in September dropped plans to supply Iran with high-precision S-300 defensive missiles.

The decision infuriated Iran, with Ahmadinejad accusing Russia of selling out "to our enemies" and brought relations between the two countries to a new post-Soviet low.
