Senior Iranian official tweets in Hebrew on Russia talks | TOI |

A senior Iranian official tweeted a message in Hebrew on Wednesday amid high tensions between Jerusalem and Tehran, though the purpose of the message seemingly aimed at Israel was not immediately clear.

Ali Shamkhani, the secretary-general of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, wrote in Hebrew, English, Arabic and Persian about his meeting with Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev on Afghanistan.

"An hour ago, in a conversation with my friend colleague Mr. Patrushev, Secretary of Russia's National Security Council, we examined the developments in Afghanistan, Syria and the Persian Gulf," he wrote.

"Fortunately, the political obstacles to Iran's membership in the #Shanghai_agreement have been removed & Iran's membership will be [finalized] via official [procedures]. #Good News," he added in broken Hebrew.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization is a political, economic and security alliance that currently comprises eight countries -- China, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
