An Iranian Foreign Ministry official said Friday a joint fact-finding team will be set up by Iran and Syria to probe into causes of Lebanese senior Hizbollah Commander Imad Mughniyah's assassination, IRNA reported from Tehran.
Deputy Foreign Minister Ali-Reza Sheikh Attar said in this week's Friday prayers congregation that the decision has been made following Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki's talks with Syrian officials.
Addressing Tehrani Friday prayers worshipers as a pre-sermon lecturer, Sheikh Attar said the joint fact-finding team will look into the root causes and dimensions of Mughniyah assassination so as to identify and name perpetrators of the dirty crime.
Mughniyah was killed late on Tuesday in a car bombing in the Syrian capital, Damascus.
