"Russia could use Iran base for Anti-terror flights"

Iran says Russia could use its airspace and military bases for anti-terrorist operations in Syria.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tehran will consider the possibility of Russian warplanes flying over to Syria via Iran on a case by case basis. Zarif made the remarks ahead of President Hassan Rouhani’s meeting with his Russian counterpart in Moscow on Tuesday.

Russian bombers used a central Iranian airfield to carry out anti-Daesh airstrikes in Syria last year. The warplanes later left Iran after Moscow announced that the deployment had achieved its goals. Since then, Iran has said on several occasions that the deployment was temporary, but could be resumed whenever needed.
