Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has described Saturday’s missile strikes on Syria as an aggressive act aimed at raising the morale of defeated terrorists in the country. During a telephone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, Rouhani noted that the US-led attacks on Syria showed that Washington has direct ties with the terrorists in Syria. He said that when the US felt that the terrorists are losing a strategic region like Eastern Ghouta, it reacted by conducting missile strikes on Syria. The Iranian president noted that the US, France and Britain do not want stability in Syria. Putin said for his part that further missile attacks would lead to chaos in international relations. The two presidents agreed that the missile strikes have damaged the prospect of a political resolution to the conflict in the Arab country.
