Iran plays important role in fighting terrorism in Syria: Deputy FM

Advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Ali Akbar Velayati on Wednesday met Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad, affirming to him Iran’s continuing support for the Syrian people and government in various fields until victory against terrorism is achieved.

Velayati said that all plots against Syria have failed due to the Syrian people’s steadfastness, the army’s sacrifices, the wisdom of president Bashar al-Assad, and the support of allies and resistance forces.

For his part, Mikdad said that the resistance axis is achieving one victory after another against terrorists and their supporters, noting that the victories will continue until Syria is cleared of terrorism.

The meeting was attended by Syrian Ambassador in Tehran Adnan Mahmoud

In a press conference after the meeting, Velayati and Mikdad stressed the decisive stance of the resistance axis states on continuing joint cooperation and coordination in fighting terrorism.

Mikdad said that viewpoints were identical with Iran on various issues, adding “We in Syria reject all procedures taken by Turkey in Idleb and other areas, and we demand the withdrawal of the occupying Turkish army from Idleb and other areas,” noting that Turkey should respect the sovereignty of Syria and the decisions taken in Astana.

“The support provided by Iran has played an important role in achieving victory and foiling schemes that serve the Zionist entity and the U.S. interests in the region,” Mikdad added.

“We reject all division attempts in Iraq and we affirm the territorial integrity of the region’s countries,” he said, indicating that Syria supports Iran regarding the position of U.S. President Donald Trump towards the nuclear agreement.

In turn, Velayati reiterated that the resistance axis will foil all the schemes aiming at undermining the region and its identity and heritage.

He pointed out that Iran will continue providing support to the legitimate governments in Syria and Iraq and will prevent any attempt to undermine their sovereignty and territorial integrity, stressing that the U.S. schemes in Syria will fail just like they failed in Iraq.
