    During the meeting that was held on Saturday Soltanifar said that the media cooperation between Tehran and Damascus was aimed at providing true information about what is going on in Syria, the SANA news agency reported.

    Chairman of the Syrian Journalists Union Moussa Abdelnour said that Syria would defeat terrorism in the country and called for enhancing Syrian-Iranian cooperation and joint actions in the sphere of culture and media. He also expressed Syrian gratitude for the Iranian support for the anti-terror struggle, in which Damascus is engaged.
