Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan and his Russian and Syrian counterparts, Sergey Shoigu and Fahd Jassem al-Freij respectively, stressed the need to continue their trilateral cooperation in the fight against terror groups. In a meeting in Moscow on Wednesday night on the sidelines of the VI Moscow Conference on International Security, the three defense ministers exchanged views on a range of issues, including the anti-terrorism campaign in Syria.

They stressed the need to continue the campaign until the full eradication of violence and terrorism in the war-hit country, Tasnim News Agency reported. The ministers also deplored a recent US missile attack against a Syrian military airbase near Homs and Washington’s blatant support for terrorists, calling for an immediate end to such acts of violence.

The three countries’ cooperation includes diplomatic efforts to end fighting in Syria, which have gained momentum in recent months with the announcement of a ceasefire in the Arab country late last year.
