Syria on Vladimir Putin's Mind for 1st Trip to Iran in 8 Years

Syria on Vladimir Putin's Mind for 1st Trip to Iran in 8 YearsRussian President Vladimir Putin is in Iran for the first time in eight years, meeting with that country’s leaders to discuss the conflict in Syria and making a show of closeness against a backdrop of geopolitical manoeuvring as world powers press for a renewed effort to end the war there following deadly attacks in Paris this month. Russia and Iran are Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s crucial military backers and their position on his future as leader is being closely watched as a precondition for ending the war in the country. “No one from the outside can and no one should impose upon the Syrian people any sort of form of rule, or impose who personally should run this,” Putin said during the meeting with Khamenei, as shown on Russia state television.
