BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – National security advisers of Iran, Russia, China, India, and Afghanistan met for a day-long regional security dialogue summit in Tehran on Wednesday.

The summit is addressing anti-terrorism and anti-extremism in Western Asia, with bilateral meetings between security officials expected to take place on its sidelines.

Supreme National Security Council of Iran (SNSC) spokesperson Keyvan Khosravi dismissed Israeli claims regarding the September 17 downing of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 jet near the Syrian port of Latakia.

“I think the best response was provided by the Russian government itself, by clarifying the totality of the issue and officially announcing that the Zionist regime [of Israel] was guilty in this case. I think that is the best response to this issue,” Khosravi said.

Khosravi went on to praise Iran-Russian cooperation in anti-terrorism, citing on-the-ground operations and the Astana initiative on Syria.

With all the contradictions and technical oddities in Russian communiqués about the case, they’re in damage-control mood, emitting botched “plausible denials”…
It may please Iranian ears to hear what Russians said but assessing these ignore that IRGC deliberately planted their arms-trafficking depots near Hmeimim airbase, thus making Russian militaries at risk in case of Israeli strike is self delusion from SNSC.
Russians are no fools.
