Not that we didn’t already know this, but this makes it a little more official…
Syrian Defense Minister Hassan Turkemani and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Mustafa Najar signed, on May 27, a memorandum of understanding stressing the close security ties between the two countries.
Turkemani is visiting Iran this week.
The memorandum sets out technical and training cooperation between the sides, as well as reciprocal visits.
Najar said at the signing, “Iran’s might is now considered Syria’s might.” He added that the security cooperation between them was on the highest possible level.
