The Russian air task force’s operation in Syria requires no use of Iranian airfields now, Head of the Defense and Security Committee in the Federation Council (the upper house of Russia’s parliament) Viktor Ozerov said on Monday.

"After we have ratified the agreement on our military air base in Syria, there is no need today to use in any degree Iranian air harbors," the senator said.

It is possible, however, to return to the issue of using Iranian aerodromes, if the situation changes, he noted.

"Today, there is no such need," the senator told TASS.

It is reported that Russia also requested Iraq and Iran airspace allowance to transport cruise missiles into Syria.
