The Syrian president has once again stressed that the fate of the region is only determined by its people regardless of the current challenges.
Bashar al-Assad said Syria and Iraq will surely continue to defend their sovereignty and the independence of their decision in the face of the chaos and division plots hatched by enemies. The Syrian president was speaking with Iraq’s National Security Adviser Faleh al-Fayyad in the capital Damascus. Assad added that enhancing bilateral ties would complete the elimination of foreign-backed terrorists’ hotbeds. Al-Fayyad also said Syria’s strength and its triumph over terrorism is a victory for Iraq and the other way around. The meeting came a day after U-N special envoy for Syria Geir Pedersen arrived in Damascus in preparation for a fresh round of Syria peace talks.
