 Iran has no plans to let Russia use its other bases

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehghan said the country has no plans to let Russian jets to use other Iranian bases.

Asked about the permission given to Russian warplanes to use an Iranian airbase, Brigadier General Dehghan described that as part of strategic cooperation between Tehran and Moscow endorsed by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council.

The Russian aircraft fly to the Iranian airbase to be either refueled or get reloaded, the minister explained, saying that they use the base for more effective operation against terrorist groups in Syria, Tasnim reports. 

Dehghan further ruled out any plans for permitting Russian jets to use Iranian bases other than the Nojeh airbase at the moment, but noted that they can keep using the Nojeh airbase as long as necessary.
