President Bashar Assad on Tuesday received a delegation from the Jordanian Foreign Affairs Council for Regulating Popular Diplomacy, headed by Nahedd Hatar.
During the meeting, Assad confirmed the importance of the popular committees, which encompass intellectual elites and popular demographics in creating a popular movement on the Arab arena, in confronting plots targeting the region.
Assad said despite the aggressive war targeting them, the Syrian people will always stand alongside their brethren in Jordan and support their struggle to preserve the Jordanian national identity and state.
He reiterated Syria's rejection of the plots in the region that seek to consecrate Israel as a Jewish state, the main goal of the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, that involves removing the Arab people of Palestine and liquidating the Palestinian cause at the expense of Palestine and Jordan.
Council members said that Syria's resolve is an essential cornerstone for foiling the conspiracy targeting Arab nations and that the Syrian people are facing the prelude for the realization of western projects in the region.
