General Moussavi underlined that dispatch of military advisors to Syria is done fully voluntarily, and said, "This will continue as long as necessary."

"Since the start of the conflict in Syria, the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces voiced readiness for (overseas) deployment and pressured their commanders to be dispatched to the region," General Moussavi told reporters in the Northern city of Zibakenar on Monday.

He said Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and Commander-in-Chief Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei was then informed of the Iranian military men's preparedness and interest, and the Leader agreed with dispatching a number of advisors.

In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Iranian Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi dismissed his forces' organized presence in Syria, saying that only some army men have been dispatched to the country among other volunteer military advisors.

"A number of volunteer forces have been dispatched to Syria which may consist of some members of the Brigade 65," General Salehi added.

Iran and Syria are close strategic allies, and Iran has provided significant support for the Syrian Government in the Syrian Civil War, including logistical, technical and financial support, as well as training and some combat troops.
