President Bashar al-Assad has underlined the importance of Arab solidarity in the face of foreign interventions which aim to alter Arab identity and divide communities.
During a visit by a delegation of Tunisian parliamentarians on Monday, Assad said that Arab countries are targeted by foreign states in the same way as they share similar points of weakness.
Assad noted that the popular awareness of this targeting has expanded, and therefore the role of Arab parliaments is essential for exchanging expertise and creating a dialogue, adding that “the external interventions will continue with the aim of changing our identity and dividing us into communities and small groups.”
For their part, members of the delegation headed by Mbarka Brahmi said that they came to Syria to express the support of the Tunisian people towards the Syrians, who have stood their ground despite foreign support of terrorists which target them.
They also hailed Syria’s reconciliation process and the Syrian public’s resolve to achieve victory, also lauding the reconstruction efforts they witnessed during their visit.
