Zarif says will visit Syria in near future

March 5, 2019

TEHRAN – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that he will pay a visit to Syria in the near future.

Zarif made the announcement in an interview with Al Forat TV.

On February 27, Syria’s Ambassador to Tehran Adnan Mahmoud presented an invitation from Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to Foreign Minister Zarif.

Iran is a key ally of Syria as the Islamic Republic has been providing military advisory assistance to Damascus in its terrorism fight.

Iranian officials have made it clear that Tehran would stand by the Damascus government in the reconstruction projects of the war-stricken country.
