Iran considers letting Russia use its Hamadan base

Iranian Defense Minister said that Tehran would consider letting Russia use its Hamadan air base again

Published: Updated:

Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said in an interview with Kremlin-backed broadcaster RT that Tehran would consider letting Russia use its Hamadan air base again if Moscow asked, the RIA news agency reported.

Russia launched air strikes against Syrian militants from the Iranian air base in August before the arrangement ceased amid tensions between Moscow and Tehran over how Russia had publicized its use of the facility.
