March 11, 2019

TEHRAN – Iranian Ambassador to Syria Javad Torkabadi has said President Hassan Rouhani is likely to make an official visit to Damascus in the near future to hold talks with senior Syrian officials.

Torkabadi said Iranian and Syrian leaders are in constant contact with each other, Tasnim reported on Monday, citing Lebanon’s Arabic-language al-Ahed news.

“I believe that Bashar al-Assad’s recent trip to Iran has been very successful, and in fact, we expect these trips and relations to continue,” he said.

Assad recently made an unannounced visit to Iran and met with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other senior officials.
