Velayati Commends Assad’s Role in Syria’s Resistance against Enemies

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on international affairs, lauded Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s “decisive” role in the Arab country’s perseverance against enemies.

In a meeting with Syria’s Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mekdad in Tehran on Tuesday, Velayati hailed Syria as “a symbol of resistance” against recurrent acts of aggression launched by Israel and its US-led supporters.

“Syria is a symbol of resistance, and its president’s decisive role has contributed to the dignity of the Syrian Arab Republic in the face of attacks by the Zionists and their US-led supporters,” He said.

“Through unity, the resistance front has been able to foil the enemies’ plots and their sinister objectives and score many victories. Undoubtedly, it will also achieve more success.”

He also expressed satisfaction with the development of Iran-Syria relations in all fields, Press TV reported.

The top Syrian diplomat, for his part, appreciated Iran’s firm stance on backing Syria and the resistance front.

“Despite all challenges and problems, we still feel strong thanks to the friendship with the Islamic Republic and are always proud of Iran’s friendship and support,” he added.

Iran has maintained an advisory mission in Syria at the request of Damascus with the aim of helping the war-torn country vanquish the foreign-backed militants, who have been fighting against the Syrian government since 2011.

Iran’s advisory assistance helped Syria defeat Daesh and win back control of almost all regions from terrorists.

Heading a high-ranking delegation, Mekdad concluded a visit to Tehran, where he held talks with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian.
