Iran's policy toward Syria will not change

Chairman of the Islamic Committee of Russia Heydar Jemal, director of the Center for Public Policy Research Vladimir Yevseyev and Director General of the Center for the Study of Modern Iran Rajab Safarov shared their visions of Iran's policy toward Syria. According to the experts, Iran's policy toward Syria with a new president, Hassan Rouhani, and the creation of a new government should not undergo significant changes. Syria is a strategic ally of Iran in the region. Iran knows that if the regime of Bashar al-Assad falls, it will reveal the foundations of the strategic defense of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran bears the Syrian burden, but it is possible that, in the future, if Bashar al-Assad strengthens his position, Iran will not have to take an active part in Syrian affairs.
