Moscow: Moscow and Tehran have signed an agreement to cooperate in combating crime, the Russian interior ministry said Tuesday.
The agreement was signed by Russian and Iranian police chiefs during Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev`s working visit to Iran.
"This is the first agreement that specifies the forms and methods of cooperation in combating crime," a release quoted the ministry as saying.
