Iran, Syria hold political committee meetingTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The session was led by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Countries Hossein Jaberi-Ansari and Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad.

The two sides discussed issues of mutual interests as well as regional and international developments.

Faisal Mekdad arrived in Tehran on Wednesday and met with a number of Iranian officials.

On a request from Damascus, Iran has been offering the Syrian government advisory military support against the foreign-backed militancy that started in the country in 2011.

Iran and Russia — which is another Damascus ally — have been mediating talks between the Syrian government and opposition, alongside Turkey in the Kazakh capital since early this year.

The talks have led to the designation of four de-escalation zones across Syria. Turkish troops recently marched into the Idlib Province in northwestern Syria, where one of the zones is located.

Turkey has said the deployment is warranted under the agreements in Astana.
