Iran and Russia agreed to jointly produce Russian COVID-19 Sputnik V vaccine in Iran, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Kazem Jalali announced Wednesday.

"Our talks over the joint production (of Sputnik V) have concluded and we will soon witness the manufacturing of this vaccine in Iran," Jalali was quoted as saying by Press TV.

On Tuesday, Iran began its first round of nationwide vaccination using the Sputnik V it received from Russia last week.

The second batch of the Russian vaccine will arrive in Iran on Friday, said Jalali at the high-level meeting between representatives of the Iranian and Russian health ministries in Moscow on Wednesday.

A 10-member delegation of pharmaceutical officials from Iran, led by Iran's Food and Drug Organization chief Mohammad Reza Shanehsaz, is in Russia to monitor the manufacturing processes of Sputnik V in its preparations for joint production of the vaccine in Iran.
