Syrian President Bashar al-Assad held talks with visiting Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi on Monday with both sides stressing stability and security in the Middle East, Syrian official SANA news agency reported.

The meeting held in Aleppo city, about 360 km north of Damascus, focused on the latest developments and challenges of the region.

Salehi arrived in Damascus on Sunday. He has held talks with his Syrian counterpart Walid al-Moallem on the outcomes of Istanbul nuclear talks held recently in Turkey between Iran and G5+ 1 nations, namely Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany.

The two-day talks between Iran and the G5+1 ended with no resolution on Saturday, and Tehran holds the United States and its allies responsible for the failure of talks.
