"The policies of the United States and its tools in the region, particularly dealing with the Iranian nuclear file, imposing sanctions on Russia and attempts to prolong the war in Syria through supporting terrorist organizations and escalating threats against Syria each time the Syrian Army and its allies and back up forces conduct a military operation against terrorism, have proved that the counterterrorism axis policies are right and affirmed the importance of strengthening this axis in the confrontation of the US subversive policies which pose threat to global stability," President Al-Assad said.

President Al-Assad reiterated the importance of coordination between Syria and Iran and of drawing up long-term cooperation plans that enhance elements of steadfastness of the Iranian and Syrian peoples against threats and challenges facing them.
