President Bashar Assad on Wednesday warned that the danger of Wahhabi thinking has become a threat to the entire world, not just the region.
The President was speaking during a meeting with Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his accompanying delegation. The talks dealt with the developments and challenges facing the region, foremost being the epidemic of terrorism and extremist takfiri thinking.
Assad said that the Syrian people and some people in the region have become aware of the seriousness of this terrorist thinking, adding that everybody should contribute to confronting and eradicating it.
The Iranian Minister affirmed his country’s intent to unify efforts to counter the challenges facing the region and combat terrorism to achieve security and stability.
Discussions also covered preparations for the Geneva II conference, with Zarif expressing the Iranian leadership and people’s support for Syria in its efforts to make the conference a success.
The Iranian Minister reiterated that the solution to the crisis in Syria is in the hands of the Syrian people themselves as they are the only ones entitled to determine their country’s future.
