Cooperation With Moscow Key to Fighting Terror

Cooperation between Iran and Russia has boosted the regional campaign against terrorism, said the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani.
“Constructive cooperation between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Russian Federation in Syria has effectively shifted the security situation against the terrorists, which led to the liberation of Aleppo, the establishment of a ceasefire and delineation of de-escalation zones, among other achievements,” Shamkhani said in a meeting with visiting Russia’s special envoy on Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, on Wednesday. Tehran and Moscow are backers of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his fight against a patchwork of militant groups that seek to dislodge him. The deployment of the Russian Air Force to Syria in September 2015 helped tip the war in favor of the beleaguered president.
Turkey, a member of the western-Arab coalition that backs the insurgent groups, is cooperating with Iran and Russia as guarantor states for the Syrian ceasefire. The trio has organized political talks between the warring sides in a peace process in the Kazakh capital Astana. They signed a deal during the fourth round of Astana talks on May 4 to establish four de-escalation zones in the war-ravaged Arab country. The fifth round is scheduled for June 12-13.
