Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov has signed a resolution approving a draft long-term programme for the development of trade, economic, industrial, scientific and technological cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran for a period ending in 2012.

There are provisions for the promotion of such joint projects as the development of the second and third phases of the Southern Parse deposits as well as the construction, financing and exploitation of a gas-main between Iran and India.
