We support Syrian government publically

Velayati said that Iran has neither hidden nor hides this issue and publically expresses its support for Bashar al-Asad’s government and continues it and it is natural that Russia that has the same view with us in this point, consults with us.

The transfer of Russian Military operation to Iraq, It is unlikely that Russians refuse to do it

In response to this question that if there is possibility that Russia transfers its military operation to Iraq Velayati said it depends on the Iraqi people and Iraqi government’s demand. If Iraqi government wants it and requests it, it is Iraqi people’s right that ask Russia for help as Iran helps Iraqi government.

Iran will pursue Mina disaster
