The Syria possesses geopolitical, geostrategic, and geoeconomic importance and for this reason it is deemed as the cross point for opposite forces with the maximum crisis and tension. Also regional and transregional superpowers pay special attention to this country. The strategic situation of Syria is crucially important for Iran in terms of prestige in resistance movement, national security issues, and competition with Saudi Arabia, and expansion of influence in the Middle East. The present research has studied Iranian diplomatic approach in Syria by means of descriptive and analytical method within framework of Game Theory. The question paper is: What is the significance of Syria for the Iran? What is the policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Syria after Bashar al-Assad, to be able to maintain its position in the region? It is believed that Iran intends to exit from the existing geopolitical constraints and to expand influence in the Middle East and continuity of its strategic depth using strategic opportunities in Syria and in any case it would not like to lose such a position in Syria.
