President al-Assad to Velayati: “Western and regional states fueled terrorism still backing terrorists despite efforts to cease hostilities and support political solution”

President Bashar al-Assad stressed that several western and regional states fueled terrorism during the past years are continuing to support terrorists secretly and publicly and provide cover to them despite the efforts exerted to cease hostilities and support the political solution in Syria.
Receiving Iranian Supreme Leader’s Top Adviser for International Affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, and the accompanying delegation on Saturday, President al- Assad pointed out that the firm Iranian stance in support of the Syrian people’s resilience is highly appreciated.
He said that Iran’s stances during the war Syria is facing consolidate the standing close relations between the two countries for more than three decades.
For his part, Dr. Velayati considered that the heroic steadfastness of the Syrians and the field victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army write down a new bright page of Syria’s history.
He affirmed that the Iranian leadership and people will ever remain by Syria’s side and continue to provide all support possible to consolidate its steadfastness since Iran realizes that the fierce terrorism war does not target Syria only but rather it targets the whole region.
The strategic relations between Syria and Iran and the importance of the continuation of the standing cooperation and coordination between the two countries in different spheres, particularly in counterterrorism, were discussed during the meeting.
The two sides asserted that the counterterrorism front led by Syria, Iran and Russia constitutes a foundation stone for eradicating terrorism and extremism as well as re-establishing security and stability in Syria and the region.
The meeting was attended by Presidential Political and Media Advisor Dr. Bouthaina Shaaban, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Dr. Fayssal Mikdad and Syria’s Ambassador in Tehran.

A senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei says Iran’s redline is Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s remaining in power until his term in office is over.
Velayati“Since the Syrian nation chose Bashar al-Assad as president two years ago, he will remain in the post until the Syrian people change him,” Ali Akbar Velayati, who is the Leader’s adviser on international affairs, said in an interview with the Lebanese al-Mayadeen television channel.
Saying that the Syrian nation and government are firmly defending their country, Velayati rejected the idea of imposing a president on Syria who would serve the interests of Saudi Arabia or any other party.
“The legitimate Syrian government must seek to find a solution [to the country’s conflict] through political negotiations. Friends and enemies of Syria know that no foreign option can be imposed on the Syrian nation,” Velayati stated.
The senior Iranian official further reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s support for resistance of the Syrian and Iraqi people against terrorists.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry on May 5 complained to the UN about the continued support by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey for terrorists fighting in the war-ravaged Arab country.
In two identical letters to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the head of the UN Security Council, the ministry said the international community could not depend on those countries to find a solution to the crisis in Syria.
