Iran Deputy FM, Syrian president discuss bilateral ties, regional mattersTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The two sides discussed the latest developments in the Middle East as well as ongoing events in Syria.

The Iranian diplomat has already met with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem and Prime Minister Imad Khamis.

Iran-Syria joint political commission meeting was held in Damascus on Wednesday.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (ISIL), currently controlling parts of it.

According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.

In the meantime, Iran has remained a close ally of Syria and supports its legitimate government in the face of foreign-backed militancy.

Tehran insists that the Syrian nation is the only side that has the right to shape the future of its own country, rejecting foreign intervention with the use of force.
