'Russia is ready to invest $50bn in Iran's oil and gas sectors,' according to Ali Akbar Velayati, Senior Adviser for International Affairs of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic.

Velayati was on a visit to Moscow that included a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

'Military and technical co-operation with Russia is of major importance to Iran,' Velayati said.

'The discussion focused on Russian-Iranian cooperation issues as well as the situation in the region, including developments in Syria. The parties reaffirmed their commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran's Nuclear Deal (JCPOA),' the Kremlin said in a brief statement on the meeting on Thursday.

According to the Iranian official, a Russian oil company has signed an agreement with Iran worth US$4 billion, and that deal 'will be implemented soon.'

Russian energy giants Rosneft and Gazprom have also started talks with the oil ministry of Iran to potentially sign deals worth up to US$10 billion, the Iranian adviser said, while a Russian government official confirmed to FT Russia's US$50-billion investment plans.

Earlier this year, a local Iranian company, Dana Energy, in a consortium led by Russia's Zarubezhneft, signed an agreement with the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) to redevelop the Aban and West Paydar oilfields.

Separately, Russia's Energy Minister Alexander Novak said on Friday that Russia was studying all legal implications for a possible deal with Iran under which Moscow would provide goods to Tehran in exchange for oil. Such a deal is still possible, Novak said.
