DAMASCUS, April 12. /TASS/. Iranian military instructors and advisers help Syria in the fight against terrorism, and Tehran also supports Damascus in the economic sphere, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad told TASS on Tuesday.
"There are many Iranian military instructors and advisors in Syria," Mekdad said. "Iran helps Syria a lot in the economic sphere, it also provides scientific and cultural assistance," he added.
Mekdad noted that Syrians are thankful to Iranians for their support directed at preserving the country’s unity. "Relations between Syria and Iran are strategic, just like Syria’s relations with Russia," he said.
The Syrian deputy foreign minister also noted that the Hezbollah group is also helping Damascus in fighting against terrorism. "Syrians have the same attitude toward the role of Hezbollah in Syria.
