Russia’s complex anti-ISIS campaign in Syria would be impossible without Iran – Putin

The Russian-led anti-terrorist campaign in Syria has taken center stage at the Gas Exporting Countries Forum in Tehran, where President Putin met with Iranian leaders and praised their country’s role in rooting out terrorism in the region.

Meeting with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, the Russian leader said that without Iran’s cooperation in the anti-terrorist campaign in Syria, success would have been impossible to achieve. Vladimir Putin emphasized that the Russian-led operation is a “complex” mission that also involves work coordinating the efforts of the coalition which includes Syria, Iran and Iraq.
