Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Faisal Mikdad asserted that the Palestinian cause will remain the central cause of the Arab nation, and that the Syrian people share a mutual fate and cause with the Palestinian people.
Meeting with the Director of the Political Bureau at the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), Ambassador Anwar Abdul Hadi, on Tuesday, Mikdad said that the Palestinian cause is the cause of the Syrian people, adding that Syria stands alongside Palestine, asserting that this is a strategic position.
He lauded the Palestinians for their "wise" position in confronting and foiling the Israeli aggression, asserting that “the war wasn’t waged on a single Palestinian faction; it was waged on the entire Palestinian people… it was the people who emerged victorious, and not a faction that attempts to appropriate the victory as if they’re the only one resisting.”
Abdul Hadi reviewed the details of the Israeli aggression against Palestinian territories and the latest developments related to the recent truce, in addition to reviewing the efforts exerted by the Palestinian leadership and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to ensure the success of the truce.
