He stressed that the possibility of the return of terrorism to the region was a major reason for signing a comprehensive agreement for military cooperation with Syria, saying:

“The war on terrorism has not yet reached its end, and it is possible that terrorism will return to the region because of the support of some countries to this, and for these reasons the military cooperation agreement was signed Between Damascus and Tehran. ”
