President Bashar Al-Assad on Wednesday urged BRICS leaders, meeting in South Africa, to help attaining stability in the world.
In a letter sent to South African President Jacob Zuma and Chairman of currently convened BRICS Summit, President Al-Assad stressed that the Group has become the hope of the oppressed people who suffer blatant foreign interference in their affairs.
"Syria has been suffering for the past two years from foreign, regional and Arab- backed terrorism which claims the lives of civilians, destroys Syria's infrastructure and cultural heritage and aims to undermine Syria's identity as the home of coexistence and equality among all the Syrians," President Al-Assad said.
He urged the BRICS summit leaders to work hard to attain immediate halting of violence in Syria in order to make the political solution a success as this solution needs an evident international will to dry terrorism sources and to put an end to the process of financing and arming terrorists.
The President added: "Being a strong political, economic and civilizational bloc which seeks the attainment of peace, security and justice in today's troubled world, you are invited now to do your best to end the Syrian people's suffering caused by the unjust economic sanctions which violate international law as they directly and badly affect the daily lives of our citizens."
President Al-Assad expressed the Syrian people's hope to cooperate with BRICS grouping being a just force that aims to disseminate peace, security and cooperation among the peoples of the world away from the hegemony and dictates from which the people in the Arab region have suffered for decades.
He called upon BRICS states to play an effective role in halting the meddling of certain parties in other countries internal affairs and to work hard to achieve democracy in international relations.
