Russia’s Future Use of Iran Airfield Possible

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani underlined Tehran’s resolution to continue cooperation with Moscow in the fight against terrorism in Syria, saying Iran will allow Russian jets to fly from Hamedan’s Nojeh Air base again, if the need arises.

In an interview with RT Arabic, Shamkhani pointed to a recent operation against terrorists in Syria, in which Russian bomber jets used the Nojeh air base in Iran’s western province of Hamedan for flying to Syria, saying that the operation has ended for now.

“Strategic relations between Iran and Russia have not ended, but the military operation was naturally limited and finished,” he said.

As military cooperation between Iran and Russia depends on developments in Syria, the resumption of such cooperation in future also hinges on developments in the Arab country.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various militant and terrorist groups pursuing the interests of their foreign patrons.

Russia’s aerial support for Syrian forces since September 2015 has given impetus to the anti-terror fight.

Iran remains a close ally of Syria and supports its government in the face of militancy.
