June 11, 2018 - 6:19

TEHRAN – Hossein Amir Abdollahian, a senior foreign policy advisor to the parliament speaker, said on Sunday that Iran will stay in Syria as long as the Syrian government asks for advisory help, Mehr reported.

The Islamic Republic will stay in Syria and it will carry out operations against terrorists upon the request of the legitimate Syrian government, Amir Abdollahian said at a ceremony to commemorate the victims of last year’s ISIL terrorist attacks on the Iranian parliament and the Imam Khomeini shrine in Tehran.

He further said the Americans were aiding ISIL, adding that the U.S. is a key sponsor of terrorism in the region.
