Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Saturday expressed his country’s determination to stand by the Syrian people until security and stability are restored to all parts of Syria, and to help rebuild what was destroyed by terrorists during the years of the war.
Rouhani’s comments came in a telephone call with his Syrian counterpart Bashar al-Assad, in which the two touched upon the latest developments in confronting terrorism.
The Iranian president said that the Syrian people are the only ones who can determine the future of Syria, away from any foreign interference, pointing out that the tripartite Sochi summit came at the right time to consecrate this principle, which is guaranteed by the United Nations Charter and international law.
For his part, Assad thanked Rouhani and Iran for contributing to the Syria’s victory over terrorism. He added that Iran will be a partner in Syria’s reconstruction just as it was a partner in defeating terrorism.
