Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich, says bolstering bilateral relations with Iran is part of the Kremlin's diplomatic strategy, Press TV reported.

"Maximum expansion of ties with the Islamic Republic [of Iran] is one of Russia's strategies," IRIB quoted the official as saying on Wednesday during his weekly news conference in Moscow.
