President Bashar al-Assad on Monday received the senior assistant to Iran’s foreign minister for special political affairs, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, and his accompanying delegation.
At the start of the meeting, Jaberi Ansari briefed Assad on the political efforts exerted by Iran to help end the war on Syria, discussing the latest developments regarding the situation on the ground.
Jaberi Ansari stressed that the aggression waged by the United States, Britain and France was motivated by the victories of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies against terrorists, as the three states were worried about these victories continuing at the same pace and expanding into new areas.
Assad said that the three states and their pawns in the region have been supporting terrorists since day one of the war on Syria, asserting that the recent tripartite aggression will not succeed in stopping the war on terrorism, which will continue until control is recovered over all Syrian territory.
The two sides’ viewpoints were in agreement regarding the various issues discussed during the meeting, as they stressed the importance of maintaining cooperation and coordination between Syria and Iran to benefit the two countries’ peoples and to serve stability in the region.
The meeting was attended by presidential political and media advisor Bouthaina Shaaban, Deputy Foreign Minister Fayssal Mikdad, the director of the Asia Department at the Foreign Ministry, and the Iranian ambassador to Syria.
