GENEVA (Reuters) - Iran and Russia can work together to restrain America, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, according to Fars News.

Putin arrived in Tehran on Friday to attend a trilateral meeting with Iran and Turkey focussed on the Syrian province of Idlib, the last stronghold of active opposition to the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

"One of the issues that the two sides can cooperate on is restraining America," Khamenei said. "Because America is a danger for humanity and there is a possibility to restrain them."
