Iran: We give Assad economic, not military, aid
Syria's government has no need of foreign fighters to quell an uprising against the rule of President Bashar Assad, Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on Monday.


"We are giving them (Assad's government) economic support, we are sending gasoline, we are sending wheat. We are trying to send electricity to them through Iraq, we have not been successful," he added. (Reuters)
