There isn’t any Iranian military base in Syria: Hossein Amir Abdollahian

Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian dismissed media reports claiming that Tehran has set up military bases in Syria, but meantime, confirmed the country’s advisory role.

He stressed Iran’s military advisory role in Syria, and said, “We will continue this presence as far as the Syrian government demands for our presence for military and advisory assistance.”

Amir Abdollahian said that when the Syrian government concludes that there is no need for Iran’s military presence in the country and Syria becomes stable, Iran will end its advisory role.

The Iranian foreign ministry had earlier rejected Israeli media reports that Tehran has purchased a military base in Syria as well as dissidents’ claims that Iran is building ballistic missiles in the Arab country in cooperation with Russia and North Korea.
