Russia and Iran Grow Closer In Their Isolation

“Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin, arrives in Iran on Tuesday for a rare international visit that emphasizes how the two countries are becoming more aligned amid their isolation from Europe and the United States,” the New York Times reports.

“The Kremlin is eager to show the world — and its own people — that it still has friends, despite the global opprobrium over the war in Ukraine. That is giving Iran a new opportunity to stimulate its sanctions-starved economy, with Russian businesses that had been focused on trade with the West now racing to find new markets and suppliers.”

The Independent notes that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will also travel to Tehran to meet with Putin.
