Assad meets Khamenei in Tehran

The agency indicated that Assad, who is visiting Tehran for the second time since the outbreak of the Syrian war in 2011, also met with Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi during his visit.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said during a visit to Damascus in March that Iran’s priority is to strengthen strategic relations with Syria in light of a changing global scene after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Tehran’s economic role in Syria has grown in recent years, providing the Assad regime with lines of credit and winning lucrative business contracts.
