Damascus, SANA – Chairman of the Iranian Shura Council’s Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security Alaeddin Boroujerdi said that his visit to Syria comes to speak out loud in the face of the false media campaigns and to stress that his country is still standing by the Syrian Government and people as a big part of the war against Syria is a psychological one.
Boroujerdi, during his meeting Wednesday with Speaker of the People’s Assembly Mohammad Jihad al-Laham, hailed the steadfastness of the Syrian Arab Army in Jisr al-Shugour city, wishing that the army will defeat terrorism in the city again.
He indicated that the most pressures on Iran with regard to the nuclear file are exerted by Israel and Saudi Arabia which is adopting the policy of the Zionist entity, the enemy of the Arab and Islamic World, and it is a shame on Saudi Arabia to do that.
For his part, al-Laham stressed that the Syrian-Iranian relations have been a main factor of stability in the region and have guaranteed the rights of the peoples of the two countries in the face of the Western greed, adding that countering extremism and terrorism in the region entails joint regional and international efforts and an honest international will in the face of terrorism.
Al-Laham indicated that what is currently taking place in Yemen of an aggressive war against its people is a part and parcel of the terrorist war launched against Syria and Iraq and it is a part of the scheme of spreading terrorism and chaos and partitioning the states of the region and undermining their peoples.
“It is time to take a decisive stance in the face of the killers of culture, history and people,” al-Laham said.
In a statement after the meeting, Boroujerdi said that the recent act of entering the Syrian territories illegally by the Turkish Prime Minister was illogical and that it violates all international laws and accords, stressing the need for exposing the governments that facilitate the entry of terrorists to Syria in the media.
Answering a question on his assessment of Iran’s invitation (by the UN) to Geneva latest consultations, Boroujerdi said “They reached a result that they shouldn’t repeat the mistakes which they committed in Geneva 1 and 2 as our policies are based on solving the crisis internally among the Syrians themselves and we reject any foreign interference and consequently, the countries which claim that they support democracy should allow the Syrian people to choose their fate by themselves.”
He also announced that an Iranian economic delegation headed by Advisor to the First Deputy of the Iranian President, Rostam Ghasemi, will visit Syria next week to follow up on signed agreements, adding that Iran is prepared to host a meeting for heads of parliaments of states that are friendly towards Syria.
Earlier Wednesday, Boroujerdi renewed his country’s full support to Syria in facing terrorism and the Takfiri terrorists who threaten the whole world.
In a statement to SANA reporter in Tehran before leaving for Damascus, Boroujerdi said that “Our visit to Syria stems from our feeling of great responsibility towards the country, and to strongly express our full support to it… This visit also aims at firmly stressing our rejection of the western-US-Zionist schemes and conspiracies targeting Syria”
He clarified that the visit is meant to provide support to the Syrians by the Iranian Shura Council and the Iranian people in confronting terrorism and the Takfiri ideology as well as the schemes that are targeting Syria to boost its resilience after four years of steadfastness and firmness only to prove that victory is Syria’s ally and the Syrians are to definitely overcome the crisis.
Boroujerdi stressed that repercussions of the unethical act of the USA, the West and their tools in the region- supporting terrorism and terrorists- will be rebound on them, and they are now worried that their citizens would come back home after getting involved in terrorism.
He stressed that terrorists and those behind them will not fulfill their goals in Syria and their schemes will fall apart.
