In a telephone conversation on Tuesday, the defense ministers of Russia and Iran, Sergey Shoigu and Hossein Dehqan, discussed the situation in the region following a US missile strike on Syria and said it runs counter to international law and encourages terrorists, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry reports.
