Riyadh, SANA- President Bashar al-Assad met on Saturday the Iraqi President Abdul Latif Rashid at his residence in the Saudi capital, Riyadh. The talks dealt with the Arab role required to halt the Israeli aggression on the Palestinian people.
President al-Assad said that the Western collusion which justifies all forms of crime and destruction in Gaza Strip is encouraging the Israeli killing machine, as the United States and the West provide support tools that help them commit massacres, and they also provide political cover for these massacres that daily target women, children, and the elderly, all of which mount to the level of genocide.
President al-Assad added that the Israeli entity’s usurpation of the Palestinians’ right to their land and state, and its occupation of Syrian and Lebanese territories is the main and permanent cause of all the region’s problems.
For his part, the Iraqi President stressed the need to stop the war of genocide committed by the Israeli occupation in Gaza and the rest of the Palestinian territories, calling for halting it and guaranteeing the rights of the Palestinian people.
The two leaders also reviewed bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries and agreed to exert efforts to develop them in all fields in a way that responds to the aspirations and interests of the two countries and the two brotherly peoples.
