During the online meeting, Jalali congratulated the Russian government for its success in producing COVID-19 vaccine, and called for health and medical cooperation between the two countries.
He also pointed to negotiations between Iranian and Russian health ministers and the agreement between two sides with regard to the joint cooperation.
Jalali referred to the results of cooperation between Iran's Pasteur Institute and the National Gamaleya Center of Russia and hoped for starting the process of making vaccine as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, Dmitriev expressed happiness over two countries’ cooperation in mass production of COVID-19 vaccine.
Russia is the first country in the world which has unveiled COVID19 vaccine.
In relevant remarks last week, Iranian Agriculture Jihad Minister Kazzem Khavazi announced that the animal phase of the trial of Iran's anti-coronavirus vaccine has ended in Razi Serology Institute and the institute is getting ready for the first phase of the clinical trial of the vaccine.
