Syrian President Bashir Assad arrives in Tehran for a state visit.
"Common threats deserve the formation of a united front by Iran and Syria more than ever," Aljazeera quoted Ahmadinejad as saying at a joint press conference with Assad.

"Boosting relations could protect the region from the threats," he added.

The Iranian leader did not identify the source of the threats but in a commentary on the visit, Iranian state television commented: "Cooperation between the two countries is important, because the United States and Israel have invaded the region."

Considering that these two nations are primarily responsible for the current carnage in Iraq, further cooperation between them is deeply troubling.
