Defense Minister Rajnath Singh meets with Iranian General Khatami to discuss bilateral issues

His meeting with Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Khatami was very fruitful, Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday. He spoke in support of the US Alliance, but said that maintaining some independence was important for Afghanistan.

After attending a meeting of defense ministers at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, Singh arrived in Tehran on his way back from Moscow after a three-day visit to Russia. In Moscow, he held bilateral talks with defense ministers from Russia, China and Central Asian countries.

On his way back from Moscow to Delhi, Rajnath Singh held a 20-minute meeting with the Iranian Defense Minister during a short stay in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Saturday night.
