During the meeting in the Iranian capital on Monday, Qalibaf and Dzhagaryan explored avenues for bolstering and reinvigorating bilateral fields in economic and trade areas.
During the meeting, Qalibaf appreciated Russia for its principled stance in the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
"The claims made in IAEA resolution are not legal and Russia had firm stance in this regard," he said.
The Iranian parliament speaker said undoubtedly parliamentary cooperation between the Russian State Duma and the Iranian Parliament will continue with more speed and precision.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Qalibaf referred to the importance of focusing on the situation in Syria, and said solving the Syrian issue has merely a political solution and holding a virtual or in person trilateral meeting by Iran, Russia and Turkey will be effective.
He underlined the importance of holding future joint commission meetings of the Iranian Parliament and State Duma and following up on the economic issues.
Dzhagaryan, for his part, congratulated Qalibaf on his election as new parliament speaker.
He added that the Iranian and Russian parliaments play a major role in developing bilateral ties.
Dzhagaryan noted that claims in the IAEA Board of Governors are illegal, saying Russia and China will continue supporting Iran.
