DAMASCUS - Iranian Ambassador to Damascus Ahmad Mousawi said the visit of two Iranian ships to Syrian is within the normal cooperation between the two countries.
"The Iranian-Syrian ties haunt them and confuse their plans and that is why they try to exaggerate events," Mousawi was cited by Al-Watan as saying. "These two ships sail into international water due to the international laws," he added.
The Iranian ships arrived in Syria on Thursday for a training mission.
On Saturday, chief of Syria's Navy Taleb al-Bari and his Iranian counterpart Habibollah Sayyari signed a naval training agreement.
