Mikdad briefed the delegations on the developments on the ground and in the political arena in Syria, and the effect of the victory achieved by the Syrian Arab Army in Aleppo on the course of the terrorist war which Syria is being subjected to due to its firm positions regarding Arab issues, primarily the Palestinian cause.

He stressed the importance of having a unified Arab and African position to face colonialist threats to the futures of Arab and African nations, underlining the considerable care given by Syrian diplomacy to relations with African states.
