On Monday, the Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Walid al-Muallem, received Iran’s Shura Council Assistant Speaker for International Affairs, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, and the accompanying delegation.
Talks during the meeting dealt with the strategic relations between the two countries, underlining the importance of working on developing them continually and preserving the continued high-level coordination and consultation between the two brotherly countries.
The two sides also discussed the latest developments in the region and means to overcome the challenges facing the two countries, on top of the siege and the coercive economic measures imposed by the US and its allies in the interest of Israel.
Muallem expressed Syria’s appreciation of the supportive Iranian stance of Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity and the steadfastness of its people.
He thanked the brotherly people of Iran and the Iranian leadership for their continued support of Syria in the face of the terrorist war waged against it, which threatens the security and stability of the region and the world, affirming that the victories achieved in Syria are victories for Syria and its allies.
Abdollahian, for his part, asserted that the Syrian-Iranian relations are deep-rooted and that the two countries are in the same trench, adding that the challenges and conspiracies targeting the two countries will only make the two brotherly peoples more determined to defend their rights in the face of the hegemony attempts that target the region as a whole.
He extended his congratulations to the Syrian people for the victories in politics and on the battlefield, achieved under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad, indicating that Syria’s steadfastness is considered as an example to follow.
