The Speaker of the People’s Assembly, Hammoudeh Sabbagh, said that Syria values India and Armenia’s supportive stances in its anti-terrorism war.
Sabbagh’s remarks came during his meetings with the Indian Ambassador, Man Mohan Bhanot, and the Armenian Ambassador to Syria, Dikran Kevorkian, on Thursday.
He appreciated the efforts exerted by the Indian Ambassador during his mission in Syria to bolster the friendly relations between the two countries to the benefit of the two countries.
In turn, the Indian Ambassador said that his country supports Syria in its anti-terrorism war by backing it at international conferences, offering humanitarian aid to the Syrian people, in addition to the participation of the embassy in several festivals held in Syria over the recent years.
In a similar meeting with the Armenian Ambassador to Syria, Dikran Kevorkian, Sabbagh indicated that Syria is now witnessing the recovery and reconstruction of the country, and hoped that its relations with the countries that stood by them would develop.
Kevorkian said that the Armenian people have always stood by Syria, following Syria’s support for the Armenians during the ordeals they had experienced throughout history.
He added that the newly-elected Armenian parliament seeks to develop relations and exchange expertise with the Syrian People’s Assembly.
