"In the course of the upcoming talks, new mechanisms will be created with the aim of accelerating work," Eslami said commenting on his meeting with the head of Russia's Rosatom nuclear energy corporation, Alexei Likhachov.

Eslami said that "current cooperation regarding peaceful nuclear activities, such as the construction and development of nuclear power plants, is progressing well", although he noted that cooperation "should be increased."

The Iranian official traveled to Moscow to discuss issues of mutual interest and further cooperation with the Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom.

Upon their arrival in Moscow, he was received by Iranian Ambassador to Moscow Kazem Jalali and other diplomats at the Iranian embassy, as well as by Russian nuclear officials.

Earlier Saturday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized the unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran following the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

The Russian foreign minister urged Washington to take a "more active" approach to help resume stalled talks aimed at reviving the deal.
