Russia, Iran Affirm Necessity of Continuing War Against Terrorism in Syria

Russia and Iran affirmed the necessity of continuing the war against terrorism in Syria until eradicating it completely.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Tuesday that participants in the Russian-Iranian consultations in Tehran on the situation in Syria called for finding a political solution to the crisis that would guarantee respecting Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that the Russian President’s Special Envoy to Syria Alexander Lavrentiev and Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin on Monday held meetings with the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran Ali Shamkhani and Iranian Assistant Foreign Minister Hossein Jaberi Ansari.

Talks during the meetings dealt with a number of political issues, particularly the situation in Syria.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry noted that the two meetings tackled the outcomes of the quadripartite summit held in Istanbul on October 27, in addition to the latest developments in Syria.
