Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Wednesday invited Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to visit Damascus, state news agency IRNA reported, without specifying a date for the trip.

Zarif tendered his resignation two days ago but Iranian President Hassan Rouhani rejected it on Wednesday, calling it “against national interests.”
