VICTORY OF SYRIANS, ALLIES TO HELP ESTABLISH BALANCED WORLD: ASSAD
TEHRAN, March 20 — Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Saturday the victory of the Syrian people and their allies in the war against terrorism would contribute to establishing a more balanced and just world, SANA news agency reported.
Such a world would stand up to the attempts of the imperialist West and its agents in the region at imposing its will that goes against the interests of the region’s peoples, who are committed to their sovereignty and self-determination right, he said during a meeting with Kamal Kharrazi, Head of Strategic Council on Foreign Relations of Iranian Supreme Leader’s Administration.
Kharrazi affirmed that supporting Syria, be it on the level of fighting foreign-backed terrorism or in the political track, is a firmly established strategic policy for Iran.
This policy is firm inasmuch as the Iranian leadership realizes that the ultimate aim of the fierce attack on Syria is to undermine its pivotal role within the Resistance front, Kharrazi was quoted saying.
President Assad, for his part, highlighted that the political and military support of Syria’s friendly countries, mainly Iran and Russia, has effectively contributed to consolidating the Syrians’ steadfastness in the war against terrorism and all the way through restoring security and creating the favorable conditions to enable them to decide the future of their country by themselves.
The latest developments in Syria, particularly in relation to the cessation of hostilities agreement, the expanding circle of the national reconciliations and the Syrian dialogue in Geneva, were the main topics of discussion during the meeting, SANA reported.
Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem also met with Kharrazi, with both sides discussing bilateral relations.
