Foreign Minister Dr. Faisal Mikdad and Iran’s Ambassador to Syria Javad Turk-Abadi discussed prospects for relations between Syria and Iran and means of strengthening them in addition to developments in regional and international arenas.
During their meeting on Saturday, Mikdad expressed Syria’s condemnation of the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh near the capital, Tehran.
He renewed Syria’s commitment to Iran in the face of desperate attempts to undermine its progress and scientific and national capabilities.
Mikdad affirmed that such crimes affect the whole world because it is not just an assassination but rather a terrorist act, which the international community must condemn.
He emphasized that the United Nations must fulfil its responsibilities in fighting terrorism and adhering to the rules of international law, otherwise there will be more tension in the region.
The minister also expressed his confidence in Iran’s ability to confront such terrorist crimes that the Zionist entity, and those who back it, stand behind.
