BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – Greater coordination between Iran and Russia will prevent the United States from interfering in Syria, Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani stated on Tuesday.

Shamkhani told his Russian counterpart, Nikolai Patrushev, during a telephone conversation on Tuesday that Iranian-Russian coordination is necessary to protect Syria’s territorial integrity and national sovereignty.

Both the Russians and Iranians are playing an integral role in the ongoing Astana Peace talks that are taking place in the capital of Kazakhstan.

The Iranian government has been critical of the U.S.’ role in Syria and their previous aggression towards the Syrian military that resulted in the downing of a Syrian Su-22 jet in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

  1. Iran has no say but I reckon Russia is building its power in the former USSR, hopefully at least but lets hope it doesn’t bankrupt itself like last time.
