Abdullahian: Syria’s Victory over Terrorism “Very Imminent”
Iranian deputy Foreign Minister for the Arab and African affairs Hussein Amir Abdullahian affirmed Thursday that Syria’s victory over terrorism is very imminent.
“The resistance, showed by the Syrian people under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad, played the important role in clarifying reasons behind spread of terrorism in region,” he told SANA news agency.
“Iran will continue its support to Syria,” Abdullahian added, expressing satisfaction that a number of European countries and players started to reconsider their stances, describing the visits of EU delegations to Syria as an important step on the way to reach a peaceful solution to the crisis in the country.
He added that the talks he held at the Russian Foreign Ministry concentrated on the situation in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Libya and Palestine.
Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.
On May 2011, Syrian army launched a wide-scale operation against armed groups and gunmen operating in the country, who started to escape the army blows and infiltrate illegally to Lebanon.
