Iranian troops will remain in Syria as long as the government in Damascus approves of their presence inside the country, the Deputy Foreign Minister of Iran Hussein Jaberi Ansari said on Saturday during a meeting with Russia’s Special Envoy for Syrian Affairs Alexander Lavrentiev.

The Iranian Army’s presence inside the country came at the request of the Syrian Government, Ansari stated.

Iran will not adhere to any demands from the U.S. or Gulf nations regarding the deployment of the Iranian Army in Syria, Ansari elaborated.

He added that other agreements, if any, in connection with Iran would have no practical or effective result with regards to Iran’s presence.

“We have conducted in a limited and well-calculated manner and upon the request of and agreement with the Syrian government arranged our presence in Syria and the presence has been in line with restoration of stability and tranquility in Syria and speedy end to the crisis,” Ansari concluded.

Once peace is restored in Iraq and Syria, and foreign troops are expelled, an alliance of Syria, Iraq and Iran, with the help of Russia will lead to the end of the presence of American troops in the ME. Then only the liberation of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States will be necessary for peace and stability to return to that part of the world.
