DAMASCUS,(ST)_ The liberation of Aleppo from terrorism is not only victory for Syria, but for whoever contributes genuinely to fight terrorism, particularly for Iran and Russia, underscored H.E. President Bashar Al-Assad.
Receiving the visiting Iranian Assistance foreign Minister for the Arab-African Affairs Hussein Jaberi Ansari, President Assad added that this liberation is also a setback for all the states which are anti-Syrian People and which used terrorism as a means for their own interests.
Mr. Ansari, on his turn, outlined that the strategic relations binding Syria and Iran for decades have contributed to immunize both countries and the region countries in general to encounter foreign schemes, asserting Iran's determination to develop bilateral relations with Syria providing all that is necessary as to bolster the Syrians' firmness and steadfastness against terrorism.
Talks during the meeting dealt with the latest developments, regional and international developments, where Mr. Ansari briefed H.E. President Assad on the exerted diplomatic efforts as to help in ending the terror war imposed on the Syrians, especially the latest tripartite meeting in Moscow between Iran, Russia and Turkey.
Aleppo's recent victory against terrorism is but the fundamental step on the way of elimination terrorism from all of Syrian territories securing the appropriate conditions for a solution as to end war, underlined the meeting talks.
