A Russian Foreign Ministry official told Itar-Tass that Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Kislyak represented the Russian side during the two-day consultations in Tehran.
He met high-ranking officials of the Iranian Foreign Ministry and the Supreme National Security Council.
The conversations addressed a "broad range of themes of bilateral cooperation and issues concerning transparency and the peaceful character of the Iranian nuclear program," the ministry official said.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a comment on the situation around Iran last week that "settlement of the Iranian nuclear problem should be accomplished with political and diplomatic methods."
"There are all possibilities for that," Lavrov said.
Moscow "has supported an accord" between Paris, London and Berlin, on the one hand, and with Tehran, on the other, and "has held contacts with the European troika and with Iran."
This is all about "freezing the uranium enrichment program and continuing close cooperation between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency without any secret topics," Lavrov said.
"Russia will do everything to put into practice all accords reached," he said.
