Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev talked on telephone over bilateral issues, the local ISNA news agency reported on Tuesday.

The two sides highlighted potentials of the two neighboring countries and called for boosting level of cooperation, said the report.

"Iran and Russia should always be friend to each other. The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes further cooperation in all fields," Ahmadinejad told Medvedev.

Russian President on his part stressed his country's willingness to work closely with Iran on energy, fuel, transportation and trade, according to ISNA.

Russia is ready for any kind of cooperation with the Islamic Republic of Iran, he was quoted as saying.

Earlier in the day, British newspaper Daily Telegraph said a Stuxnet virus, which was developed at Israeli Dimona NPP, had installed itself into the computers of the Iranian Bushehr nuclear power plant built by Russians.

Russia's state nuclear corporation Rosatom on Monday denied the reported virus contamination in Iranian Bushehr nuclear power plant computer system.
