In January, hard-line Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad travelled to Damascus to meet with Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. At the end of the trip, Ahmadinejad defended al-Assad in the United Nations probe into the murder of former Lebanese Prime Minster Rafiq Hariri.
A UN-appointed committee investigation into Hariri’s assassination in 2005 found that senior Syrian leaders were directly involved.
