President Bashar al-Assad sent on Tuesday two cables to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani congratulating them on reaching the final nuclear deal between with the P5 1 group.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif announced in the Austrian capital Vienna that Iran had come to a final nuclear agreement with the US, Britain, China, France, Russia and Germany.
In his cable addressed to Khamenei, president Assad described the deal as “a great victory” for Iran, expressing on behalf of the Syrian people and on his own behalf “heartfelt” congratulations on this “historic achievement”.
“Indubitably, this agreement crowns the steadfastness of the Iranian people, with all their components and inclinations, in the face of the unfair sanctions that were imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran”, he said.
Notwithstanding the cruelty of these sanctions, Assad added, the Iranian people have created an opportunity to boost their own capabilities and bring their research, universities and achievements to the recognition of the world.
The signing of this agreement constitutes a “major turning point” in the history of Iran, the region and the world, said the president.
“It is also unequivocal recognition by the world countries of the peacefulness of the Iranian nuclear program”, said Assad, adding that the Syrian people “are quite assured that the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue, with greater momentum, supporting the just issues of peoples and working for peace and stability to prevail in the region and the world”.
The President’s congratulations and wishes for further success were also expressed in his cable sent to Iranian President Rouhani, in which he reiterated that reaching the final nuclear agreement has guaranteed the Iranian people’s rights to possessing peaceful nuclear technology.
President Assad also hailed the deal as a “fundamental turning point” in the history of Iran’s relations with countries of the region and the world, voicing confidence that the coming days will see greater momentum in Iran’s constructive role in backing the peoples’ rights and establishing the foundations of peace and friendly relations among countries to the best interest of the whole of humanity.
The president lauded the achievement as a “victory for all lovers of peace and justice all over the world”.
