MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin met Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Thursday in Moscow, RIA news agency reported, without providing any details.

Velayati hailed Iran's ties with Russia on Wednesday as "strategic" and said he would deliver messages to Putin from Khamenei and Iran's President Hassan Rouhani. His visit comes as Iran braces for renewed U.S. economic sanctions.
