BEIRUT, March 20. /TASS/. Military and political support of friendly countries, above all, Russia and Iran, has "effectively contributed to strengthening Syrians’ tenacity in the war against terrorism," Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Saturday while receiving Kamal Kharrazi, the head of the Strategic Council for Foreign Relations of Iran’s Supreme Leader Administration, in Damascus.
According to the president, "this support helped to restore stability and security and create suitable conditions so that the Syrians themselves could determine the future of their country."
Assad noted that "the victory of the Syrian people and its allies in the war with terrorists would contribute to forming a more fair and balanced world order." "This success will strengthen counteraction to attempts by Western neo-colonialism and its regional associates to impose their will, which runs counter to the true interests of the peoples of the Middle East protecting their sovereignty and the right to determine their fate."
According to the SANA news agency, Assad discussed with the Iranian envoy the situation in Syria "in light of termination of military operations and the expansion of the scope of national reconciliation in a number of areas." The two sides also paid attention to the intra-Syrian dialogue under way in Geneva.
