We will not hesitate to approve the creation of Iranian military bases in our country, if we consider it necessary for our security. Iran fought to protect the people of Syria, shedding the blood of its citizens. At the same time, I note that in Syria there is no regular Iranian army.
According to Assad, the current format of Iranian support for Syria is good and effective.
