Iranian Foreign Minister: Russia Can Use Iranian Military Bases for Airstrikes Against Terrorists in Syria

almaalomah.info

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif declared that Russia can use Iranian military bases for airstrikes targeting terrorists in Syria on a "case by case basis," RT reports.

"Russia doesn't have a military base [in Iran], we have good cooperation, and on a case by case basis, when it is necessary for Russians fighting terrorism to use Iranian facilities, we will make a decision," Zarif said.

On the occasion, Iran's Supreme National Security Council secretary (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani, noted: 

"Iran and Russia cooperate in Syria not in single cases, but the coordination is comprehensive, embracing different aspects; accordingly, Iran’s airspace welcomes Russian fighter jets in case they seek to hit terrorist targets in Syria," Mehr news agency reports.

Russia used the Hamadan Airbase in Iran to launch attacks in August 2016 against militants in Syria. Tehran then granted Russia permission to deploy an undisclosed number of Tupolev Tu-22M3 supersonic long-range strategic bombers and Sukhoi Su-34 strike fighters.
