Iranian Ambassador to Damascus Ahmad Mousawi said the visit of two Iranian ships to Syrian is within the normal cooperation between the two countries.

In an interview with the Syrian Al-Watan daily published on Monday, Mousawi said that cooperation between Tehran and Damascus arouses Israel's anger.

"The Iranian-Syrian ties haunt them and confuse their plans and that is why they try to exaggerate events," Mousawi was cited by Al-Watan as saying. "These two ships sail into international water due to the international laws," he added.

The Iranian ships arrived in Syria on Thursday for a training mission.

On Saturday, chief of Syria's Navy Taleb al-Bari and his Iranian counterpart Habibollah Sayyari signed a naval training agreement.
