Iranian Ambassador to Damascus Mehdi Sobhani accompanied Mekdad to the airport in Damascus on Sunday evening.
Deputy Foreign Minister Bashar al-Jaafari is also accompanying al-Maqdad on the trip.
The top Syrian diplomat was welcomed by Hossein Amir-Abdollahian at the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday and they held talks with each other.

This is Mekdad’s first visit to Tehran after the new Iranian government took office in early August while Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has visited Damascus twice after taking office.
