IRGC Commander Mohammad AliJafari reaffirmed during a meeting with Ali Khamenei and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and other Iranian diplomats Iran’s commitment to Syrian President Bashar al Assad.

Fuelling speculation of Russian-Iranian differences over Assad, the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps suggested on Monday that Tehran may be more committed to him than Russia, saying Moscow "may not care if Assad stays in power as we do".
