BEIRUT, October 15. /TASS/. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has commended the assistance of Russia and Iran in the fight against terrorism
"We highly appreciate the efforts of all friendly countries to boost Syria’s combat capability in the fight against terrorism," the Syrian television quotes the president as saying. "A special role in this is played by Russia and Iran. These efforts will benefit all peoples in the region and the world."
Assad also pointed to the importance of forming a united front involving Russia, Syria, Iran and Iraq to combat terrorism, which poses a threat to the regional and international security and stability.
The Syrian president earlier discussed the situation in the country and the Middle East as a whole with a delegation of Iranian lawmakers led by Chairman of National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of Majlis, Iran’s parliament, Alaeddin Boroujerdi.
Boroujerdi said that the formation of the new front attested to the failure of the efforts of the so-called international coalition led by the United States, which professes commitment to combat terrorism.
