Syria Denies Receiving Iranian Aid


Syria denied Monday night that Iran had offered to supply it with financial aid. Reports said that Iran had offered $6 billion in financial aid to assist Damascus with its budget problems, a result of the ongoing anti-government rioting in recent months.

Syria's oil minister also denied reports in Arab media that Iran planned to give Syria as many as 300,000 barrels of oil a day for the next nine months.
