In the meeting on Wednesday, Sattari and Rogozin hailed the activities of committees under the Third Iran-Russia High Commission for Technological Cooperation.

The two sides also called for efforts to speed up the process of implementing previously signed agreements between the two countries.

Iran and Russia have agreed to cooperate in about 40 scientific projects in diverse fields, including nanotechnology and biotechnology, the production of medical equipment, the treatment of incurable diseases, cognitive science, and academic cooperation.
