Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said continued support for the legal government of Syria and its territorial integrity stands atop Tehran’s foreign policy agenda.
“The Iranian government will continue helping Syria in its campaign against terrorism,” Amir Abdollahian said on Friday.
The Iranian deputy foreign minister hailed the Syrian government’s resistance against terrorism, and said, “If there weren’t the strong resistance of the Syrian government under leadership of President Bashar al-Assad and the support of the Syrian people to the campaign against Takfiri terrorists, the world would have witnessed dominance of terrorists on Damascus.”
On Thursday, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem lauded Iran’s support for his country’s stability, and stressed that nothing can ruin the good and strategic relations between the two nations.
“Nothing can undermine Iran-Syria profound and strategic relations,” al-Moallem told the Lebanese daily al-Akhbar on Thursday.
He called on certain regional states to avoid supporting anti-Damascus terrorist groups.
