Raisi: Iran supports peace in Syria, rejects any foreign interference
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi affirms his country's readiness to continue supporting the axis of resistance, especially Syria.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said Sunday that Iran stresses the need to implement the good agreements that resulted from the visit of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to Tehran.
In a telephone conversation with his Syrian counterpart on the occasion of Eid Al-Adha, Raisi affirmed that his country would continue to support the resistance axis, especially Syria, stressing that Iran supports stability and peace in Syria and rejects any foreign interference in it.
On his part, Al-Assad considered that Syria's enemies are weakening day after day in the face of the axis of resistance, underlining that Iran and Syria are on one the same front.
The Syrian President also conveyed his greetings to Iranian Leader Sayyed Ali Khamenei.
SANA reported that "both presidents expressed their wishes of continued prosperity of Syrian-Iranian relations, as well achieving prosperity and progress for the two countries’ peoples."
It is noteworthy that last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said during his visit to Damascus that the relations between Tehran and Damascus are strategic, noting that Syria stands on the front line in confronting the Israeli occupation.
In the same context, Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said "There are Iranian efforts to solve the issues with Turkey without any war drums being beaten," welcoming Iran's role in this regard.
