No Differences With Russia Over Syria No Differences With Russia Over Syria

A Foreign Ministry official denied western media claims that Iran has differences with Russia over Syria.

"There is no disagreement between Iran and Russia regarding Syria," Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Sunday, Press TV reported.

"The two countries diligently assist the Syrian Army in its fight against terrorism."

Iran has sent military advisors to Syria to provide assistance to the Arab country in the fight against terrorists operating there.

"Iran's military advisors ceaselessly continue their efforts for fighting terrorism," Amir-Abdollahian said.

Russia has also been conducting airstrikes against militants in Syria since September 30, upon a request from Damascus.

Commenting on the Russian mission, Amir-Abdollahian said, "Moscow has taken measures to fight terrorism in Syria, which are coordinated with the government in Damascus and assessed as positive."

The conflict in Syria has so far claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people and displaced millions, according to the United Nations.

Since last year, the United States and its allies have been targeting areas in Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.
