BEIRUT - Syrian President Bashar Assad said on Tuesday he was confident his top regional ally Iran would step up its efforts to back "just causes", suggesting he expects more backing from Tehran in his fight against insurgents after a nuclear deal.

"We are confident that the Islamic Republic of Iran will support, with greater drive, just causes of nations and work for peace and stability in the region and the world," Assad said in a message to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The message was published by state news agency SANA.

Assad also called the atomic agreement sealed in Vienna a "major turning point" in the history of Iran, the region and the world.
