"Syria expresses once again its full solidarity with the Islamic Republic of Iran in the face of the irresponsible American measures, in particular, the US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Iran, the P5+one and the EU," Sana News Agency quoted him as saying.

"We warn against policies that aim to foment crises and conflicts in the [Persian] Gulf under false pretexts.
