"I received inquiries about my visit to the Iranian embassy for the 35th anniversary of Iranian Islamic Revolution. I received an invitation to attend the celebration at the Meridian Hotel. I was also invited to an interview with Russia Today Channel in its office in Damascus at 7pm the same day. I attended the celebration and made the interview. But I didn’t stay for long time and I didn’t have dinner there," Abdulazim posted on his Facebook page.
