President Vladimir Putin has confirmed the spending plan, with at least three deals worth some $15 billion already on the table, Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign policy adviser to Iran's supreme leader, said in Moscow on Friday.

"Iran and Russian Federation are diametrically opposed to US, NATO or any other countries' presence around the Caspian Sea region", he said.

Velayati also said that USA sanctions against Iran could raise oil prices and harm oil consumers.

Tel Aviv has warned Damascus of any kind of approaches towards the Golan Heights, occupied by Israel in 1967.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Putin in Moscow on Wednesday for talks focusing on Iran's presence in Syria.

The Israeli army has launched multiple air strikes against Iranian and pro-Iranian targets in Syria, while an American official said that the Israeli army has carried out an attack targeting the site of an Iraqi armed group in eastern Syria on June 17.

In an interview with CBS news this month, USA national security adviser John Bolton said Iran, not Assad, was the "strategic issue".

"There is continuous military cooperation between our military and the Russian military in Syria", Gendelman said. Russia's entrance into the Syrian civil war, at the urging of Iran, is widely believed to have turned the tide against the opposition forces. "Our opinion is that Iran needs to leave Syria - that's not new to you".

Oil cooperation between Iran and Russian Federation can be boosted to some $50 billion and Moscow has expressed readiness to make this investment, the adviser on worldwide affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, told Iran's state TV, as reported by Mehr news agency.

The meeting comes at a significant time for Iran.

Russia's Kremlin did not give further details on the outcome of the talks, but the Iranian embassy in Moscow announced that Velayati had held a series of meetings after talking to Putin, along with a number of Russian officials in different sectors.

The 2015 nuclear deal lifted most worldwide sanctions on Iran in return for Tehran curbing its nuclear program, under strict surveillance by the United Nations nuclear watchdog. Other companies have said they are still assessing the situation and examining all possible risks.

Israel also said it carried out several strikes on Iranian forces in Syria this year in response to Iranian rocket fire and an Iranian drone infiltration from Syrian territory.
