Iran fires back after Putin calls on foreign nations to leave Syria

The Spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Bahram Ghassemi, responded to Vladimir Putin’s statement regarding the withdrawal of all foreign nations from Syria.

“We will stay inside Syria as long as there is a terrorist threat and as long as the Syrian government wants us there,” Ghassemi stated this morning.

“The nations that should leave Syria are the ones that entered without the permission of the Syrian government,” he added.

Iran sent several military advisors to Syria at the request of the Syrian government; they are currently embedded with the Syrian Army at several fronts across the country.
