Chairman of the Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security at the Iranian Shura Council Alaeddin Boroujerdi reiterated his country's support for Syria and the Axis of Resistance in the face of terrorism, stressing that all terrorists must be expelled from Syria.
Speaking at a press conference in Damascus on Thursday, Boroujerdi, who is on a visit to Syria heading a delegation, said "Our delegation is here to reaffirm once again Iran's support for Syria and the Axis of Resistance in confronting Syria's enemies who have waged an unfair war against this country for years now."
"We strongly support the independence and territorial integrity of Syria, and therefore we condemn any entry of foreign forces into the Syrian territory without the consent of the Syrian government as it contradicts the international laws," said Boroujerdi.
He affirmed that all the forces that have entered the Syrian territory without the consent of the Syrian government or coordination with it must leave it immediately.
Boroujerdi went on saying that any sustainable cessation of hostilities in Syria requires the elimination of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organizations in Syria.
Boroujerdi also affirmed that his country supports a political solution to the crisis in Syria through an intra-Syrian dialogue where solutions can be reached by the Syrians themselves without any imposed conditions or foreign dictates.
