SAMARKAND, Uzbekistan — Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi tells his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that the cooperation among countries sanctioned by the United States will make them “stronger.”

“The relationship between countries that are sanctioned by the US, such as Iran, Russia or other countries, can overcome many problems and issues and make them stronger,” Raisi says in a meeting with Putin in Uzbekistan.

“The Americans think whichever country they impose sanctions on, it will be stopped. Their perception is a wrong one.”
