Iran will continue to allow Russian military aircraft to pass through Iranian airspace on their way to and from Syria.
“We uphold in this regard a close cooperation with Russia by opening the airspace of Iran," the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, Ali Shamkhani, said on Saturday, February 11th.
Shamkhani also noted that Russian aircraft are allowed to use Iran’s Hamedan air base for refueling purposes.
The Secretary stated that such allowances entail complex coordination between Russia and Iran.
Both Moscow and Tehran are involved in the war in Syria, supporting the government forces of President Bashar al-Assad.
