IRNA – Iran’s Vice-President Mohammad Mokhber has said that the Islamic Republic is resolved to expand economic cooperation with Syria as the two sides enjoy cordial, close, and strategic ties in various areas.
Mokhber made the remarks in a meeting held in Tehran on Saturday with the visiting Syrian Prime Minister Hussein Arnous.
Iranian nation and government have special eye on Syria, Mokhber said, adding that the Islamic Republic prioritizes Syrian welfare, success, independence and tranquility.
In his remarks, Mokhber mentioned to the recent crimes being committed by the Zionist regime of Israel in Gaza and called those crimes as massacre, war crime and crime against humanity.
Then, he censured the international community for not giving proper response to the Zionists’ criminal acts in Gaza.
After the October 7 Al Aqsa Storm operation, the grandeur of the United States and the Zionist regime faded away to cause their anger because they had wrong image from their power.
Like the terrorist group of Daesh (ISIS) which could not achieve its goals in Syria, the Zionist regime cannot dominate the region as the people in Gaza are strongly standing against the regime forces, Mokhber said.
Mokhber expressed hope that the disappointed enemy would leave the region completely.
For his part, Arnous said the Syrian nation and government will not forget the Islamic Republic’s honorable stance.
Syria and Iran have always been under pressure from the global arrogance, the United States and the Western countries because the two countries seek independence, the prime minister noted.
Despite all the pressures, Syria will not change its stance and will continue moving towards the path of Resistance.
In his remarks, the Syrian prime minister described his Tehran visit as a turning point in bilateral ties.
He expressed hope that the two nations would soon feel the achievements to be made during the Tehran visit.
Speaking about the Zionist regime’s aggression against Gaza, Arnous said such an aggression has been displayed in front of the eyes of the world, and it seems that some are willing to omit Gaza from the map of the world.
Meanwhile, the Resistance front resists to foil all the plots.
