Military Chief in Syria

Chairman of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri is in Syria to hold military and defense talks. Heading a high-ranking delegation, Baqeri left Tehran for Damascus on Tuesday and was to meet his Syrian counterpart, General Ali Abdullah Ayoub, and Defense Minister Major General Fahd Jassem al-Freij, Tasnim News Agency Reported. The two sides were to discuss ways of boosting defense and military cooperation, continue consultations on the fight against terrorism and improve stability and security in the region. In May, the top Iranian and Syrian military officials held a meeting in Tehran and vowed to boost collaboration. Iran has been providing military advisory support to Syria and Iraq in their campaign against terrorism at the request of the two countries' governments. Baqeri also paid a visit to Turkey in August, where he met top authorities, including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his Turkish counterpart, General Hulusi Akar, and Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli.
