Iran supports a Russian-led effort to impose Syrian government control over the south of the war-battered country, a senior security official was quoted as saying on Saturday amid reports that Damascus is preparing a major military offensive in the area.
“We strongly support Russian efforts to drive terrorists out of the Syria-Jordan border and bring the area under Syrian army control,” the secretary of Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, told the Persian-language newspaper Sharq.
Moscow said last week that only Syrian army troops should be on the country’s southern border with Jordan and Israel, Reuters reported.
Syrian government forces, in their strongest position since the early months of the seven-year conflict, have driven rebels out of all territory near the capital Damascus this year.
