Al-Assad: Escalating Aggression on Syria Will Enhance Its People’s Resolve to Eliminate Terrorism
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad received on Monday the Chairman of Iranian Shura Council's Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, and the accompanying delegation.
The meeting discussed the situation in Syria and the important victories achieved against terrorism.
Both sides affirmed the joint will of Syria and Iran to continue to strengthen the strategic relations binding them together, including relations between the two countries' parliaments.
Al-Assad said that the region in general is going through a phase of redrawing the entire international map, adding that the escalation of the aggression against Syria and the fact that hostile countries have shifted to a stage of direct aggression after the fiasco that has befallen their agents and tools will only increase the Syrians' determination to eliminate terrorism in all its forms, and uphold their sovereignty and their right to shape their own future.
For his part, Boroujerdi affirmed that the project of the US and its allies and their tools in the region was defeated in Syria, indicating that the failure of the recent aggression underscores the solidity of the resistance axis and counterterrorism.
He stressed that Iran will remain, as it has always been, staunch in its support for Syria, vowing to keep up efforts aimed at achieving a political solution determined by the Syrians that preserves the unity and sovereignty of Syria.
