Iran supports Syrian nation against terrorist groups

Iran still supports Syrian nation and government in their fight against terrorism, Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri told Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi on Tuesday.

In a telephone conversation on Tuesday, Iranian Vice-President said Iran’s resolve and determination to support the Syrian nation and government’s resistance against terrorist groups “continues unabated”.

“Iran will support Syria in this time of hardship as much as possible,” he underscored.

He further lauded the recent achievements made by the Syrian forces and allied volunteer fighters in the north of the country in pushing militants out of areas across the province of Aleppo.

Jahangiri at the same time underlined the necessity for finding a political solution to the crisis in the Arab country, and said, “Putting an end to the Syrian crisis has definitely a Syrian-Syrian solution and a political approach and political negotiations are the only solutions to the Syrian crisis.”

He further noted that only the Syrian people are entitled to make a decision about their country’s fate and future.

During the conversation, Halqi thanked Iran’s assistance for Syria’s campaign against terrorism, and expressed the hope that he would pay a visit to Iran soon to discuss ways to further expand Tehran-Damascus relations.
