He was accompanied by Counsellor Rahim Zharfi and General Consul of Iran in Kazan Alibeman Eghbali Zarch.
The Ambassador shared his views on Russian-Iranian ties and their progress. He said that he was glad to once again visit Kazan and, in particular, KFU and the upcoming friendly match between the national football teams.
He suggested that the audience ask questions and, by his own account, was surprised by how deep many of them were. For example, the attending students asked about the Kurdish self-determination, relations with the United States, translation services and existing demand for them in the Iranian market, etc.
Ambassador Sanai said that Russian-Iranian relations have changed to the better, and very much so. Heads of states have signed a number of important agreements. There is a Russian-Iranian university association (of which KFU is a part).
However, the guest was especially pleased to respond to the question about his diplomatic job, its upsides and disadvantages, “Working as a diplomat is an opportunity to serve your country and protect its interests. It’s a creative and interesting job, but also very demanding as well.”
General Consul Zarch thanked the Ambassador for the visit, as did Counsellor to the Rector of KFU Oleg Pakhomov.
