Lebanese Shi’ite militant group Hezbollah has been continuing its presence in Syria despite having “many martyrs” there, Ali Akbar Velayati, director of the Strategic Studies Center of Iran’s Expediency Council, said Jan. 3 during a conference in Tehran.

After a meeting with Iraqi Vice President Nouri al-Maliki, Velayati said that Iran hasn’t changed its principal position on the Syrian issue and continues supporting Syrian government and people.

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said Dec. 29 that agreements were achieved on a ceasefire in Syria and the readiness to start peace talks.
