Syrian President Bashar al-Assad received Thursday Chairman of the Iranian Shura Council's Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security Dr. Alaeddin Boroujerdi and the accompanying delegation.
During the meeting, the two sides discussed the latest developments in Syria.
Boroujerdi affirmed that the successes achieved by the Syrian Arab Army in combating terrorism came to crown the steadfastness of the Syrian people and their resistance and determination to defend the homeland in the face of terrorism and its supporters, saying that victory of Syria would redraw the map of the entire region.
President al-Assad and Dr. Boroujerdi exchanged viewpoints on regional and international developments and their impact on the situation in Syria.
They also noted that the insistence of some states to continue their irrational policies and their support for terrorist organizations to achieve goals that do not serve the interests of their people had contributed to the spread of terrorism and destabilized more countries.
For his part, President al-Assad pointed out that the future of the region will be drawn by the peoples who stood in the face of these policies and made sacrifices in facing terrorism and protecting their own countries and their independent decision.
Both sides also affirmed the importance of enhancing parliamentary cooperation and employing it in all fields in a way that strengthens brotherly relations binding the Syrian and Iranian peoples as well as promoting the level of cooperation between the governments of the two countries.
