Iran’s Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani has reiterated the Islamic Republic’s support for Syria in fighting terrorism, also saying Damascus is at the forefront of resistance against the Israeli regime.
Larijani made the remarks at a joint press conference with his Syrian counterpart Mohammad Jihad al-Laham in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Monday.
The top Iranian parliamentarian also lauded the resistance of the Syrian nation against terrorism, saying that Syrian people have managed, to a great extent, to foil the plots hatched by the “adventurous” terrorists through steadfastness.
Syria has been beset by a deadly crisis since March 2011. The ongoing militancy has reportedly claimed the lives of over 222,000 people. Many western countries and their regional allies specially Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are among supporters of the militants fighting the Syrian government.
