Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad shortly after arriving in the capital Damascus at his invitation, ONAreports citing IRNA.

During their meeting on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Zarif and President Assad discussed the Astana peace process for Syria and the progress in the bilateral deals signed during Assad’s trip to Iran in February.

During his one-day stay in Syria, the top Iranian diplomat is scheduled to hold talks with other senior officials, including Prime Minister Imad Khamis and Foreign Minister Walid Muallem.
