Iranian President supports Syria against pressure
font size    

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Friday expressed his country's support to Syria under mounting international pressure over a UN probe into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the official SANA news agency reported.

Ahmadinejad called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the two leaders agreed to continue consultation and coordination between the two countries regarding the issue, SANA said, without giving further details.

An interim report presented by chief UN investigator Detlev Mehlis on Oct. 20 implicated Syrian and Lebanese officials in the killing of Hariri in a car bomb blast in Beirut on Feb. 14.

Syria denied any involvement and dismissed the report as politically motivated.

The UN Security Council unanimously adopted a Western-sponsored resolution on Monday, demanding full Syrian cooperation with the UN investigation or face possible "further action".
