MOSCOW, April 30. /TASS/. Aggressive steps of some Western countries against Syria will only increase the Syrians’ determination to defend their country’s sovereignty, Syrian President Bashar Assad said, according to the SANA news agency.
The recent attacks "will only enhance the determination of Syrians to defend their national sovereignty and the right to decide on their future themselves," Assad stressed.
The Syrian leader held talks in Damascus with Head of the Iranian Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Affairs Committee Alaeddin Boroujerdi.
The sides confirmed the desire of Syria and Iran to "boost bilateral strategic cooperation."
According to the report, Boroujerdi told Assad that "the plot of the United States, its allies and regional accomplices was defeated in Syria." This occurred due to "the firmness of the resistance forces and the crackdown on terrorists," he said.
