President Al-Assad: Syria is able to confront any aggression

DAMASCUS, (ST)_ "thanks to the Syrian people's steadfastness and the solid cohesion they showed with their noble army,  Syria is definitely able to overcome  any outside aggression  as it is already  facing an inside- daily aggression by the armed terrorist groups," underscored President Bashar Al-Assad.

President Al-Assad was speaking during his meeting on Sunday with Chairman of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Alaeddin Boroujerdi.

President Al-Assad underlined  that Syria is achieving one victory after another until restoring security and stability to the homeland.

Both sides  discussed the situation in the region and the latest developments as regards  the US threats of launching a military aggression against Syria.

"Undoubtedly, the US threats will not distract  Syria from commitment to its principles and firm stances, and combating regional and Western countries- backed terrorism, especially the US, "affirmed  President Al-Assad.

Dr. Boroujerdi, for his part ,voiced  the Iranian leadership and people's  support to Syria in the face of aggression, stressing that the honest people in the region will not allow foreign schemes that are targeting Syria's role and the security and stability of the region's populations to pass.

"any external aggression on Syria will be a failure and will backfire on the aggressors as the US and its agents in the region, especially the Zionist entity, will be the main loser in this adventure, "asserted Boroujerdi.

"Washington's false pretexts  are but  to justify its threats, Boroujerdi said, calling on  all people across the globe  to press  US to make  the region and the world out of the risks of inflaming wars that no one can control.

It is to be noted that the Iranian delegation, headed by Boroujerdi ,held two separate meetings with Prime Minister Wael al-Halqi and Foreign and Expatriates Minister Waleed al-Muallem on Sunday.

The delegation arrived in Syria on Saturday as part of efforts by Tehran to support the Syrian government .
