Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi affirmed that an exit from the crisis in Syria must be made through inter-Syrian national dialogue.
Zoubi's remarks came during a meeting he held with a delegation from the Commission for Defending Syria in Sweden.
The minister reaffirmed that a political solution in Syria “will by no means be at the expense of fighting terrorism,” stressing that armed terrorist organizations will be barred from the political solution.
He put down the current state of affairs in Syria to a scheme that "seeks to undermine its resistant path and pivotal role in confronting Israel".
Syrians, despite the enormous odds, are more determined than ever to fight terrorism and support their army so that Syria can return to being as safe and stable as it was before, the minster said.
He underlined the role of Syrian expats in supporting their homeland by conveying the true image about the situation in their country.
The Chairman of the Commission for Defending Syria in Sweden George Mkadissi Elias said the Commission, since the start of events in Syria, has been gathering aid and medical aid and sending it to Syria.
He said the visit aimed at showing solidarity with the Syrian people and providing the Swedish people with perspective on the ongoing situation in Syria.
