Iran opposes foreign intervention in Syria
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi reinstated Iran’s opposition to any foreign intervention in Syria, in a phone call on Saturday evening with Syrian president Bashar al Assad on the occasion of the arrival of Eid al-Adha.
“Iran supports the establishment of peace and stability and is against any foreign intervention in Syria,” the Iranian state agency quoted Raisi as saying.

Tehran has supported the Syrian government in its quest to regain control of territory and it regularly provides military and financial support to Assad's government with many Iran-backed militias active in the conflict.
