Presence in Iraq, Syria at the Request of Governments

A senior security official on Tuesday reiterated that the Iraqi and Syrian governments want the presence of Iran's military advisors on their soil, saying that they are helping fight terrorism in the region.
"Iran's advisory role in Iraq and Syria is at the request of the two countries’ legal governments and aimed at fighting terrorism," secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani was quoted as saying by IRNA. 
He said the world generally acknowledges that Iran's influential role and presence has been the main factor in preventing the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group from expanding its territorial control in Iraq and Syria and spreading its roots in Europe.
   Withdrawal of Forces 
The official's comments came days after Russia said foreign troops should leave Syria when the war ends and a political settlement is worked out.
