The statement did not specify when the phone call took place and made no mention of Iranian arms supplies to Moscow. Russia has stepped up efforts to build ties with the Islamic Republic and other non-Western countries since invading Ukraine on February 24.

“A number of topical issues of the bilateral agenda were discussed, with an emphasis on further strengthening cooperation in the political, trade and economic spheres, including in the field of transport and logistics,” the Kremlin said.

On Wednesday a senior Russian security official met with Iranian leaders in Tehran and the two countries pledged closer ties.

The visit comes as Ukraine and the West accuse Russia of using Iranian drones to strike Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

Iran claims it sent Russia a small number of drones before the war began. Last month, two senior Iranian officials and two Iranian diplomats told Reuters that Iran had promised to provide Russia with surface-to-surface missiles.
