Speaking in a Sunday meeting with Kamal Kharrazi, the head of Iran’s Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, Bashar al-Assad said, “The providence of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, as well as the strength and resistance of the Iranian fighters and other forces of the allied front on the battlefields, have played a major role in winning the war against terrorism and defeating the Takfiri groups.”
According to a Farsi report by the IRIB News Agency, the Syrian president also pointed to the Iraqi people’s win over terrorist groups thanks to the support of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and expressed hope that a final victory would also be achieved against the terrorist groups in Syria with Tehran’s support.
Assad also elaborated on the developments in the battlefields and the political arenas of his country, saying that the US has been devising devious plots against the Syrian people and government, while other affiliated parties just play an instrumental role.
The Syrian president further expressed hope that the Kurds in northern parts of the country would agree with the government to block the region against the penetration of Washington and supporters of the terrorists.
For his part, Kharrazi congratulated Syria on the recent victories of the Syrian army and the allied forces against terrorist groups, asserting that the victory over Takfiri groups took place in light of the resistance forces’ unity.
The Iranian diplomat, who is on a three-day visit in Damascus, added that further efforts should be made to eradicate the terrorists in other parts of Syria as well.
He concluded that the enemies of Syria and the resistance movement will not give up on their plots, and that during the reconstruction of Syria, attention must be paid to the enemy’s conspiracies, especially the plots of some regional countries.
