Iran: Russia May Be Allowed To Use Air Base Again, Defense Minister Says

Iran would consider allowing Russia to once again use its Hamedan air base if Moscow asked to do so, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said Dec. 27, RT reported. Russia used the base in August to conduct bombing raids against targets in Syria but suspended its operations there after Iranian lawmakers criticized the arrangement. It marked the first time that a foreign power had used a military base in the country since the Iranian Revolution. Both Russia and Iran have played critical roles in supporting the government of Syrian President Bashar al Assad during Syria's ongoing civil war.
