Iran PressEurope: On Tuesday, The Russian Defense Minister, Sergey Shoigu, at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart, Ali Mahmoud Abbas, on the sidelines of the 10th Moscow Conference on International Security, said: "It is very important for us when we are visited by our friends, with whom we are not only fighting side by side but also defeating international terrorism, which hardly anyone has been able to do in recent time.
