Iran's Foreign Ministry insisted Monday that Tehran's ties with Moscow are "strong" and shrugged off reported Israeli-Russian coordination on a withdrawal of foreign forces from Syria.Thousands of pro-Iranian forces, including members of the Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard have been deployed to Syria over the course of the war which broke out in 2011, officially to confront "terrorism".But Tehran denies sending regular troops to fight in Syria, saying the Guards are serving as "military advisors" and that the brigades sent are made up of "volunteers" from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
