MOSCOW, April 11./TASS/. 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.
It said the telephone conversation had been requested by the Iranian side. "The ministers discussed the situation in the region developing after the US carried out a missile strike at Shayrat airbase," it said.
