Ali Shamkhani, an Iranian general and the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, sends a tweet in Hebrew.

The message, which was also tweeted in English, notes that Shamkhani met earlier today with Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. The two “discussed developments in Afghanistan, Syria and the Persian Gulf,” Shamkhani writes in Hebrew.

“Fortunately, the political obstacles to Iran’s membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization have been removed, and Iran’s membership will be finalized,” Shamkhani tweets in broken Hebrew.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization is a political, economic and security alliance that currently comprises eight countries — China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
