TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iranian parliament in a report underlined the necessity of efforts by Syrian allies to prevent any military aggression against the Muslim country, and asked them to continue strong support for Damascus even if a foreign invasion is waged against it.
“Syria, as a prominent member of the pivot of resistance, has been able to maintain its political and even military integrity in the past two years despite all pressures,” the report written by the parliament’s Research Center said on Saturday, asking Syria’s allies to help the Muslim country’s nation and government to achieve final victory.
“The victory of the country’s nation and government in an imposed war can further strengthen the pivot of resistance,” the report added.
The report called on Syria’s regional and international allies, including Iran, Russia and China, to continue their support for Damascus and try hard to prevent the outbreak of any (foreign) invasion of the country, recommending that they should remain beside Syria even if foreign enemies wage a war against the country.
Iranian officials have repeatedly underlined that Tehran is in favor of negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups to create stability in the Middle Eastern country.
In relevant remarks earlier this year, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned of the dire consequences of any military intervention in Syria for the region, and said the US will certainly be severely harmed by pursuing warmongering policies against the Muslim country.
“The US threats and possible intervention in Syria is a disaster for the region and if such an act is done, certainly, the Americans will sustain damage like when they interfered in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with members of the new Iranian cabinet in Tehran in August.
He cautioned the US and its allies that their military intervention in Syria would yield no result but blazing fire and increasing nations’ hatred from them.
Ayatollah Khamenei warned the US and its allies that “starting this fire will be like a spark in a large store of gunpowder, with unclear and unspecified outcomes and consequences”.
