Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman,  Bahram Qassemi, has said that Russia currently has no plans to continue using an Iranian airbase.

The airbase in question is in the western Iranian city of Hamedan.

Qassemi made the remarks during a press conference on Monday in response to earlier reports concerning Russia’s use of the Nojeh airbase against jihadist forces in Syria.

“Whether it is necessary [for Russia] to use our territory again as it did before will depend on relevant situations in the future. But currently it is not on the agenda,” he said.
