DAMASCUS (AFP) — Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will travel to Tehran on Saturday for talks with Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on regional developments, the state SANA news agency reported.

Assad would meet Ahmadinejad and other Iranian leader with “talks to focus on the excellent bilateral ties between the two nations and the latest developments on the regional and world stage,” SANA reported on Friday.

The news of the visit comes only days after former Iraqi premier Iyad Allawi said he asked Syria to persuade Iran to keep out of his protracted battle for the premiership with incumbent Nuri al-Maliki following March 7 elections.

It also precedes Ahmadinejad’s visit later this month to Lebanon, where Iran’s ally Hezbollah is locked in a bitter war of words with Prime Minister Saad Hariri about a UN-backed court’s probe into the assassination of his father, Rafiq Hariri, in 2005.
